Le docteur Miracle is the fifth chamber opera or “operatic musical” developed by the creative team of Peter Gordon and award-winning composer Marco Iannelli. It was Georges Bizet’s light and airy first opera, written when he was just eighteen! Followed by the Paris-written one-act comic opera Rita, a delicious farce written at the end of Gaetano Donizetti’s life, while he was living in Paris! It resulted in an Italian take on French opéra-comique with a story so familiar that it could be set anywhere — even Hong Kong!

One-act comic opera
Performed in French and Italian with English dialogue and Chinese & English surtitles.
