The Triad or 'Three in Accord'

Le toréador (1849) is a comic opera by Adolphe Adam, a French composer best known for the ballet Giselle. The story is of a ménage–a–trois between an erstwhile soprano, her oft–absent and unfaithful husband, and a previous lover, a flautist in the orchestra. The work features famous variations on the folk–song Ah! vous dirai–je, maman (better known as Twinkle, twinkle, little star in the English–speaking world). This semi–staged performance resets the story in contemporary Hong Kong.

The opera is sang in French, dialogue in English with English surtitles.
