On March 8, Singapore Lyric Opera (SLO) held its annual Opera Ball at The Fullerton Hotel with 200 guests in attendance. Former Deputy Prime Minister Wong Kan Seng graced the event as guest-of-honour for the evening. Other attendees of the Ball included patrons and donors of SLO.
In line with SLO’s upcoming production of Bizet’s Carmen, all things Spanish reigned as the theme for the evening. Besides a flamenco dance performance by the Spanish Dance Singapore, guests were also treated to a preview of Bizet’s Carmen with vocal performances by Chieko Sato, Jo-Pei Weng, Sim Wei Ying, Jonathan Mark Macpherson and Keane Ong, all whom will star in the production slated to open on 30 Aug.
