When Mozart Meets Da Ponte presents astonishing renditions of classic songs from three operas that thrill and surprise
Legendary composer Mozart and librettist Da Ponte were the most famous duo in the history of opera. The two shared the same artistic ideas and created the extraordinary trilogy – Cosi fan tutte, The Marriage of Figaro, and Don Giovanni – that took comic opera to new heights. A pop opera and a tribute to the two masters, When Mozart Meets Da Ponte presents astonishing renditions of classic songs from the three operas, and even turns the plots of the original works “upside down”. When Mozart Meets Da Ponte features new scores by David Quah (as Da Ponte), Music Director of Bel Canto Singers and tenor. A fusion of classical music and pop music, the performance presents a contemporary interpretation of classical opera that resonates with today’s audience. As the story unfolds, the audience listens to the stirring songs and arias from the three operas sung by the Bel Canto singers, with piano accompaniment by Mozart and electronic music by Da Ponte. The singers perform in the bel canto style of the operas, while the songs are revamped as pop, jazz or even rock tunes in a mix of classical and innovative elements. The show is set to be an enthralling performance for the audience!
