Relive some of your favorite moments in film and enjoy an evening of spectacular music at the Botanic Gardens with Singapore Lyric Opera’s (SLO) “Opera in the Park” on the 6th of June. A component of the Singapore Press Holding’s “Gift of Music” series, the annual outdoor affair will kick off a series of performances arranged by the SLO in celebration of its 25th birthday.
Themed “Opera in Movies and Film”, this year’s performance promises a nostalgic ride through pieces featured in films such as Superman and Les Misérables.
The Singapore Lyric Opera will boast internationally renowned conductor Wong Kah Chun, with the orchestra bolstered by a cast of up and coming young stalwarts from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.
So pack your picnic baskets, sit yourself down on the comfortable carpet of grass around the Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage and prepare to be serenaded by the carefully curated and meticulously arranged ensemble of songs prepared. The performance will commence at 6pm.
To further tantalize your taste buds, admission is complimentary!
