In light of the current situation, the live performance of JOCKEY CLUB New Arts Power - Bel Canto Singers "When Mozart Meets Da Ponte" scheduled for 4 and 5 September 2020 (Friday and Saturday) at The Box, Freespace, has been cancelled and instead will be streamed for free online on 5 September 8pm (Saturday). Please visit JCNAP's website or Facebook for further information and updates.

Legendary composer Mozart and librettist Da Ponte were the most famous duo in the history of classical opera. Their collaboration had resulted in three extraordinary masterpieces – Così fan tutte, Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni – that form the backbone of standard Italian opera repertoire and are still enjoyed by many up to this day.

Bel Canto Singers’ Music Director David Quah takes the baton and rearranges songs from these three operas to different styles including pop, rock, jazz, acapella and even beatbox. The show cleverly brings to life beloved characters from the three operas, as well as Mozart and Da Ponte themselves, in a modern day farce to hysterical effect, creating a humourous and relaxed atmosphere for our audience. The cast is here to entertain with their tremendous talents, allowing an audience of all ages to spend a fun-filled night of glee and laughter. Tickets are going fast, act now!
