Musica Viva × French May — An Enchanted Evening of Mélodies Françaises
Co-presented by French May Arts Festival and Musica Viva, produced by Prof. Lo Kingman, this programme features budding local singers performing a selection of songs while accompanied by a chamber ensemble and two contemporary dancers. Such a combination provides the audience with a refreshing audiovisual experience. The audience in Hong Kong will get to know the rarely performed but ravishing music by French composers like Berlioz and Canteloube.
A chance to hear the artistic director introduce the French composers and repertoires, which will take place in the Committee Room South (7/F, high block, Hong Kong City Hall) at 7 pm on May 27. Free admission for ticket holders.
The running time of the performance is approximately 1 hour 15 mins without intermission.
