Singapore¡¯s top vocal talents present world-famous opera repertoire in gala concert

Known for her hugely successful portrayal of the young geisha, Cio-cio-san in Madame Butterfly, soprano Nancy Yuen will join hands with Lim Shieh-Yih (tenor) and Li Guohua (soprano) to present an enchanting evening of world-class operatic pieces under the baton of established choral and orchestral conductor, Lim Yau.
They will be backed by a chorus and orchestra comprising 180 students from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) Music Department.
This one-night-only Gala Concert will be held at NAFA¡¯s Lee Foundation Theatre on 8 September 2005.
The concert programme boasts arias and duets from acclaimed operas such as Bizet¡¯s Carmen, Verdi¡¯s Othello, and Puccini¡¯s La Boheme.
The NAFA Chorus and Orchestra will present the complete Mass in G major by Schubert, a showcase of their versatility and talent. The evening will culminate with a compelling rendition of Verdi¡¯s stirring 1842 composition, Va pensiero from the opera, Nabucco.
Nancy Yuen, who recently performed to a packed audience in the Singapore Chinese Orchestra¡¯s music extravaganza, Zheng He ¨C Admiral of the Seven Seas for the Singapore Arts Festival, is also Head of NAFA¡¯s Vocal Study Department.
She says: ¡°Working with the professionals to present a classical repertoire in different languages will greatly benefit our students in their development to become full fledged musicians.¡±
Richard Adams, Head of NAFA¡¯s Music Department adds: ¡°This concert involves the full strength of the Music Department ¨C students from the diploma and degree programmes. Such an event where a complete chorus and orchestra is made up entirely of students is probably quite unique in the current Singapore arts education scene.¡±
