When and where? July 22 at Madame Fù, in Tai Kwun’s Centre for Heritage and Arts

Here’s what you missed: Ahead of a sold-out production of French composer Georges Bizet’s classic opera, Carmen, on July 30 and 31 at the West Kowloon Freespace, the team behind MTM hosted an intimate soirée to raise funds for their upcoming productions while simultaneously developing and promoting talented local singers. The evening featured a duet by violinist Joshua Bell and opera singer Larisa Martinez, as well as a surprise performance by mezzo soprano singer Moon Jin Kim. The company gave guests a teaser of big things to come, with the trailer premiere of the organisation’s first foray into film, a new adaptation of Puccini’s La Bohème, set for release in cinemas this autumn.
