HBSO Program for Mar 2019

Every year, HBSO starts the new season in March right after the Lunar New Year holiday when everyone is still in the mood of the cheerful spring. Thus, HBSO would like to introduce 3 special programs in the spirit of welcoming the new year.

W.A.Mozart's The Magic Flute with the support of Goethe Institute and the sponsorship of Quynh Paris for the costume, launched in November 2013 in Ho Chi Minh City left such good impressions on the audiences who love operas in Vietnam; which set an important milestone in the construction of a full stage opera in Vietnam. Opera The Magic Flute is often performed again in the annual seasons of HBSO. The audiences who live in HCMC have the opportunity to enjoy the art of the opera live, awakening the need to enjoy the high art. Many new projects continue to be released by HBSO such as La vie Parisienne, Die Fledermaus, Der Freischutz, Fredegonde...

Opera The Magic Flute is still one of the most loved and performed classical operas in the history of world music.
