Hong Kong Sinfonietta will provide live accompaniment to Yip’s Children’s Choir’s performances of Alice in Wonderland under the baton of Music Director Emeritus Yip Wing-sie.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking Glass are considered seminal works in the fantasy genre. For more than 150 years, Lewis Carroll has mesmerised adults and children with his tales of the peculiar, images of wonder, and anthropomorphic creatures. The ongoing legacy of his vision has spawned numerous adaptations for stage and screen, ballet, and now a children’s opera.

Contemporary Italian composer Pierangelo Valtinoni, renowned for his children’s operas, conceived the show for Zürich Opera and Yip’s Children’s Choir. The combination of a magical decor by award-winning designer Kelly Lo, known for her extensive use of bold and vivid colours, and local director Yankov Wong’s witty and imaginative direction with projection mapping to conjure up a magical world, will be an unforgettable experience for kids aged 3 to 99. There is no better way to explore the wonderful world of Alice.

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.
