The Opera Society of Hong Kong’s “Opera Fever Seven” Concert presents a concert of musical & opera educational program to showcase our passionate singers and young professionals to Le French May 2019. The opera repertoire is rich and fiery – singers of opera could hardly quench their fever of singing by singing more. In this concert, we will bring our audience an excited “voyage” through the famous French opera ‘Les contes d’Hoffmann’ by Offenbach.
The Opera Society of Hong Kong (OSHK) founded in 1992 by a group of music lovers who cherished the art of opera. We have left some indelible marks in the development history of opera culture in Hong kong since last century. Under the inspirational and visionary direction of Founder and Music Director Mr Raymond Fu, Opera Society’s chorus is now one of the most established and prominent choral groups devoted to opera music in Hong Kong. We played an integral part in over 20 operas. Thousands of nights and days were committed to music making where hundreds of passionate musicians were involved.
Our relentless pursuit of high artistic standard has produced many highly acclaimed and memorable performances which earned accolades both locally and abroad. We are very fortunate to be offered exceptional opportunities to work with many notable and celebrated orchestras such as Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and Hong Kong Sinfonietta. This well-trained chorus, with its versatility, has covered a wide range of opera repertoires from Aida to Tosca and tackled different genres of music from time to time. This is no coincidence that the OSHK Chorus, has gained valuable experiences by performing along with international renowned virtuosos and professionals such as Andrea Bocelli, Barbara Bonney, Chiara Angella, Silvio Zanon and Marina Costa-Jackson, has often been regarded as the cradle of professional vocalists in local music scenes.
Encouraged by the support of the local young choral talents and enthusiastic singers, it is our mission to continue to embrace this wonderful city of ours with fabulous opera music!
