Lake Honghu In Concert - Melbourne

Event Date: 08/11/2018, 07:30 pm

A CLASSIC OPERA ‘THE RED GUARDS ON LAKE HONGHU’
After 60 years of success and more than 3000 shows and now performing for the first time out of China in an Australian first, Hubei Symphony Orchestra of Hubei Provincial Opera and Dance Drama Theatre presents a modern concert production of the classic Chinese opera, Lake Honghu featuring seven principal singers and a chorus of forty.

These milestone concerts will take place at the Sydney Opera House on November 4 with celebrated Australian guest conductor Vanessa Scammell (My Fair Lady, The Merry Widow, South Pacific) and Melbourne Recital Centre led by resident conductor Luo Yilin on November 7 & 8.

The original opera was first performed in 1958 in Wuhan and was staged in Beijing in October 1959. Based on the true story, Han Ying and Liu Chuang led a team of guardians defending their homeland in the scenic Lake Honghu area in the summer of 1930. Interesting to note by means of its famous lake, Honghu City produces forty kinds of fish and an abundance of plants, such as the lotus, reed and a type of lack algae.

Blending western style opera with traditional Chinese and Hubei folk songs and lyrical ballad, the melody is cheerful, full of passion and shows the revolutionary pioneer’s love of the hometown and hope for the happy lives and future. The music structure contains both strength of the Chinese traditional opera and English Opera. The lyrics and the music tell the story and focus on emphasising the character’s internal emotions.

The Seraphim Trio: Schumann Quintet

Event Date: 28/10/2018, 02:30 pm

Schumann Quintet and Korngold Suite for Delicious North Sydney Spring Concert
Sydney Symphony Concertmaster Andrew Haveron and violist Jacqueline Cronin join Seraphim Trio to perform Schumann's masterpiece, the Quintet in E flat major at the Independent Theatre late October.
The Sunday afternoon treat is part of the popular Prelude in Tea series that includes a mouth-watering selection of cakes and refreshements.

By pairing the keyboard as an equal partner with the established string quartet, Schumann invents an electrifying new genre capable of bringing chamber music out of the private salon and into the public concert hall.

To be equally treasured is Korngold's gorgeous Suite Op. 23 for two violins, cello and keyboard.
The suite was commissioned by left-handed pianist Paul Wittgenstein and reveals Korngold's Late Viennese heritage, combining a rich lyricism with modern rhythmic vitality.
