Live Accompaniment Hong Kong Sinfonietta
 

Hong Kong Sinfonietta will provide live accompaniment to Hong Kong Ballet’s performances of Swan Lake under the baton of Fayçal Karoui.

A beautiful princess cursed by an evil sorcerer into a swan. A love affair that ends in heartbreak. A beguiling tale of good vs evil. Swan Lake, the most celebrated classical ballet of all time, features one of the greatest challenges for a ballerina – the dual role of the pure White Swan Odette and the scheming Black Swan Odile – and weaves a magnificent story of true love, betrayal and ultimate forgiveness.

Filled with transcendent choreography and emotionally charged imagery, John Meehan’s intelligent staging of Swan Lake fuses reality and fantasy with its dreamlike lake of swans and ethereal maidens. With glittering sets and costumes by celebrated British designer Peter Farmer and Hong Kong Sinfonietta performing Tchaikovsky’s iconic masterpiece score, Swan Lake will sweep you off your feet!

The APPRECIATE concerts are, mainly, classical concerts featuring guest artists and conductors of world renown.  Apart from performing orchestral masterpieces, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly commissions new works and introduces to audiences works that are rarely heard in Hong Kong.

Music is good for everyone! The LEARN series takes audiences aged 0 to 88 into the world of classical music through specially designed concert series including Good Music for Babies, Good Music for Kids, Short-cut to Classical Music, Know Your Classical Music and HKS McDull Music Project.

In the light-hearted RELAX concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta shares with audiences great music ranging from orchestral favourites to music from movies and musicals.

The ENCOUNTER series offers unique opportunities for audiences to get close to the music and the performers through chamber music concerts, talks, often at unconventional venues or time. These include Good Music This Lunch, Good Music @ The Fringe, Beyond Good Music @ The Fringe, HKS ArtisTree Residency and UpClose Encounters.

Often referred to as “one of the world’s great small orchestras”, Hong Kong Sinfonietta has been invited to go on many TOURS in Europe, Asia, South and North Americas, sharing good music with audiences in over 30 cities.  In 2017/2018, the orchestra will make its début in Germany and perform at festivals in France, Portugal, as well as the Beethoven Easter Festival in Poland.

WHAT ELSE?  Apart from classical concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly appears in staged productions by Hong Kong Ballet, Opera Hong Kong and visiting arts groups such as The Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Bolshoi Ballet and Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. This season, Hong Kong Sinfonietta will also host the 1st International Conducting Competition.

“A beautiful performance which showed that Hong Kong Sinfonietta is worthy of standing among the ranks of European orchestras.”  Review in L‘Eco di Bergamo (Italy)
