Leading contemporary artist William Kentridge is internationally acclaimed for his drawings, films, theatre and opera productions. A film commissioned by the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester to accompany Shostakovich's monumental Symphony No. 10, Kentridge's Oh, To Believe In Another World illustrates the story of Shostakovich and his complicated relationship with the Soviet state from the 1920s to 1960s, through charming sets made of cardboard and historical figures brought to life as puppets.
Following the huge success of its world premiere by the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester in June 2022, Hong Kong Sinfonietta is delighted to bring this brilliantly thought-provoking production and multi-sensory feast to Hong Kong, to be performed under the baton of Music Director Christoph Poppen.
* There will be a Meet & Chat session with Maestro Poppen in the City Hall foyer after each concert.
