Bridging the musical traditions of East and West, the orchestra has a versatile repertoire which spans all-time favourites and orchestral masterpieces to cutting-edge premieres. The orchestra makes its performing home at the 1,800-seat Esplanade Concert Hall. More intimate works and community performances take place at the 673-seat Victoria Concert Hall, the home of the SSO. The SSO also manages the Singapore Symphony Choruses, the chamber music series VCHpresents, the Singapore International Piano Festival, the Singapore National Youth Orchestra and the National Piano & Violin Competition.
Satisfy a bit of that wanderlust by having the world come to you instead. The legendary train, Orient Express, has been brought back to life and transported all the way from Paris to Singapore. A project that has been many years in the making, and further complicated with the ongoing pandemic, pop-up attraction “Once Upon A Time On The Orient Express” has finally opened at Gardens by the Bay on 12 December 2020 and will be open until 13 June 2021. For the first time ever, two of the original train carriages and locomotive, along with over 300 artefacts have left France to sit within the 2000m2 exhibition space within Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. The carriages include the fourgon car and a Pullman car built in 1920 with interiors decorated by René Prou, featuring superb lemon burr marquetry inlaid with pewter floral motifs. Visitors can temporarily bask in the experience of travellers who have used the train for decades, which is also a cultural icon in literature and cinema. Admire more than 300 pieces of historical artefacts, including the train carriages The Orient Express was known for its lavish decorations, and travellers were spoiled like stars and royalties. This train has been a universal attraction since its creation in 1883. A masterpiece in itself, the train is constructed with Cordoba embossed leather ceilings, Lalique crystal bas-reliefs Gobelins tapestries, velvet curtains from Genoa, silverware, precious tablecloths and crystal fine glasses. With more than 300 pieces of artefacts on display, the objet de arts can be categorised into three groups – art, daily and travel. Conceived as a luxury train by Founder Georges Nagelmackers, it was a response to the demand for more comfort during long journeys across Europe back in the days. Visitors will be able to marvel at the display of décor such as Lalique glass plate inlays, René Prou marquetry, restaurant lamps, as well as the dishes used in the dining area, as well as travel objects such as historical Louis Vuitton trunks and garment hangers once used by travellers, displayed in giant trunks. Dine in the replica restaurant carriage with special menu by Double Three Michelin-starred Chef Yannick Alléno Passengers can step aboard the Orient Express dining experience and enjoy a gourmet meal amid period décor from the train’s heyday in the 1920s.As a special gourmet highlight at the pop-up attraction, Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno, awarded twice with three Michelin stars, will be offering diners a unique experience to dine lavishly on board the replica Anatolia dining car that will house the pop-up restaurant. Recipes have been created especially for this showcase, and everything has been carefully curated to reflect and mirror the legendary meals of the era, both in terms of the dishes and the decoration. “The Orient Express is a fairy-tale universe linked to travel, culture and gastronomy. It has always spread ‘l’art de vivre à la Française’ (the French art of living) to the entire world. I am very proud to be associated with this project and to be able to offer a pop-up café and restaurant experience made especially for "Once Upon in Time on the Orient Express" in Singapore,” remarked Chef Yannick Alléno. The Orient Express Pop-Up Restaurant will open with high tea sessions from 12 December 2020. The full dining experience of lunch, brunch and dinner will be available before Christmas with more information to be revealed at a later date. Reservations for high tea can be booked online at www.orientexpressexhibition.com. Get tickets to the pop-up attraction on SISTIC now!
