Operatic Excellence, 20 Years of Grand Opera
November 26, 2010
Esplanade Concert Hall

15 September, 2010 – Celebrate with Singapore Lyric Opera (SLO) as it marks its 20-year milestone with the Anniversary Gala Concert, “20 Years of Grand Opera”, at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 26 November, 2010.

For one night only, audiences can immerse themselves in all the best-loved arias and excerpts from 20 operas that SLO has produced in the last 20 years. This is the perfect opportunity to savour some of the most brilliant renditions of works of Puccini, Lehar, Verdi, Mozart, Rossini, Bizet and many more.

Also, for the first time, 11 local and foreign vocal artistes come together for a combined showcase of 27 arias from the well-received operas that SLO has produced over the past two decades.

Mr Toh Weng Cheong, Chairman of SLO says: “Singapore Lyric Opera's 20th anniversary is certainly an occasion to celebrate and much to be pleased about. It is a time for us to thank all the supporters – individuals and companies – who had helped to develop SLO over the years. We will continue to promote the artform as we believe that Opera must be part and parcel of Singapore’s cultural landscape. We are known for our quality productions.

Robert Markow of Opera magazine [August 2007] said in his review of our 2007 production of Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia that SLO is capable of delivering quality works and it is one of the best productions he had seen in 30 years of review.

We like to say thank you to everyone who had come through for us – staff, directors, volunteers, well wishers and especially donors and sponsors – for making it possible for SLO to celebrate 20 years of opera making”.


I'm so sorry that i can't be there to celebrate the 20th birthday of the company that has given me so many lovely operatic memories, so please attend on my behalf! Ticketing information can be found at the Events Page.
