Ho Chi Minh City’s first opera performance sold out before the opening night.
Saturday November 8th is the premiere of The Magic Flute in the famous Opera House. The performance is a collaboration between the Norwegian cultural development program Transposition, and the opera company HBSO – Ho Chi Minh City Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera.
There wasn’t a weak link anywhere, and conductor Magnus Loddgard and his team, both locals and guests, are to be congratulated on a production that not only bodes exceptionally well for next year’s fully-staged version, but was an unmitigated delight in its own right.
“I am blown away by the voices I have heard, and by what artistry they present when given big roles and great challenges. Opera has a great future in HCM City.”
