Preview: Life is Ha-Ha-Happiness – A Voice and Piano Recital For All

cover-CZGizG0U8miq7Ix1eTNGUVJswxZ4Bu9s
Who says opera, art music and the theatre have to be stuffy affairs? After the success of Sure on this Shining Night last December, the same motley crew of musicians is back with an all new show to bring you joy amidst droll September!
Titled Life is Ha-Ha-Happiness, opera singers Teng Xiang Ting (soprano), Michelle Tan (mezzo), Leslie Tay (tenor), Alvin Tan (baritone), and pianist Pauline Lee return to the Esplanade Recital Studio to present a repertoire of some of the funniest, wittiest art songs and musical theatre selections in history!
During the performance, look forward to seeing the lighter side of composers such as Schubert, Chabrier, Britten, Sondheim and Bernstein, with a lineup of numbers that include numbers from “The Frogs”, “Candide” and “Utopia Limited”. The recital will also feature humorous pieces such as a Baritone secretly wishing he were a tenor in “I’m Glad I’m Not a Tenor”,  an Alto lamenting her boring music in “Alto’s Lament”, a Soprano’s lusty song of passion in “Animal Passion” and even the premiere of an all new song by composer Lee Jin Jun’s as he pokes fun at local newspaper headlines in his new song cycle entitled “Headlines”
Discover the lighter side of music with Life is Ha-Ha-Happiness, as this brilliant group of performers put a smile on your face and convince you that classical music is the furthest thing from boring.
Life is Ha-Ha-Happiness plays at the Esplanade Recital Studio on 5th September 2018. Tickets available from Peatix
