The Opera People

The Opera People never step away from a challenge...(the evening) was packed full of outstanding musical and dramatic value" – The Straits Times

In Our Manner of Speaking

From cityscapes and folksongs, to special occasions and getai, we celebrate a city that is as alive and complex as its people. Featuring newly commissioned works and arrangements by Tan Yuting and Megat Firdaus and songs by Jonathan Shin and Tsao Chieh.

Performed by Akiko Otao, Kira Lim, Felicia Teo Kaixin, Evangeline Ng, Leslie Tay and Lim Jingjie accompanied by pianists Phoon Yu and Beatrice Lin.
