Performed by the local artists of the Jockey Club Opera Hong Kong Young Artist Development and Education Programme, the abridged opera versions of Mozart’s masterpieces – Così fan tutte x The Magic Flute, will charm the audience with their sublime melodies and will undoubtedly bring an exciting and memorable opera performance to the audience.

Love, an everlasting theme in both Eastern and Western art, has inspired infinite art creations out of artists’ perceptions and mastery. Mozart’s Così fan tutte is known not only for its daring and provocative story of fiancée swapping but also its fantastic music. The story talks about two army officers wagering with an old friend on the faithfulness of their fiancée, which opens to an absurdly funny development with the two men disguising as foreigners, faked suicides and feigned hallucinations. As the girls’ fidelity is tested, the men are shocked by an outcome they could never have expected. In true Mozart fashion, all ends happy and well, but not without a few lessons learned along the way.

Mozart’s last opera, The Magic Flute, is the most popular classic in the history of opera. A fairy tale of the forces of good versus evil, the Queen of the Night commands the handsome prince Tamino to rescue her daughter Pamina from Sarastro, a high priest. Accompanied by the lovable Papageno and the Magic Flute, Tamino embarks on a quest to save the princess, encountering many trials and tribulations along the way. Finally, they got love through the test, and also defeated the Queen of the Night after the dark and evil.
