A golden era in Venetian history is unmasked!
From the heart of Venice, amid the masked carnivals, gondalas and churches, comes the glorious music of Antonio Vivaldi and his world-renowned orchestra and choir of orphaned girls. In collaboration with virtuoso instrumentalists, singers, actors and commedia dell’arte, City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong presents a dramatic narrative of Vivaldi’s life intertwined with excerpts of his most popular concertos and works including The Four Seasons.
Narrated in English. Suitable for ages 6 and above. The programme runs for 70 minutes without an interval.
