Esplanade Presents Voices Series ...
Formerly known as “A4”, the history of Opus Jam began in 1995 when the group’s founder Emmanuel Cappelaere met the American Gospel vocal group Acapella. He realised that their voices could express themselves with strength and greater intensity especially since voices were the only featured instruments. After 15 years of performance with 800 concerts and performances around the world, and five albums with over 35,000 copies sold, Cappelaere decided to broaden his musical horizon and enrich his arrangements. To do so, he created the sextet Opus Jam in 2012 at the Saint-Emilion with a wish also to remind the public that harmonised a cappella singing started in Europe. The group is supported by Ibrahim Maalouf, Didier Lockwood, Jean-François Zygel and other musicians.Now, Emmanuel Cappalaere (tenor 2), Julien Guilloton (bass), David-Alexandre Aquiba (beatboxer and baritone), Rémy Arenas (tenor 1 alto), Nicolas Gabet (soprano) and Mathieu Becquerelle (tenor 2) present a combination of polyphony with a touch of humour and lightness, giving a new and unique spin on a cappella singing. Opus Jam are the proud holders of the Grand Prix of the Moscow Spring A Cappella 2017 festival.Motown Tribute Live (A Cappella cover by Opus Jam)Heat Wave - Martha & The Vandellas (A Cappella cover by Opus Jam)Motown & Soul Medley (A Cappella)Spotify WebsiteInstagramFacebook
Remember Me, Living with Dementia. ...
For the elderly, successful ageing is a combination of minimising disease and disability, maintaining good physical and cognitive function as well as meaningful social connectivity. Based on the 10-year Jurong Ageing Study, the Age Well Everyday (AWE) programme (previously known as Dementia Prevention Programme) was developed to reduce the risk of Dementia in the elderly population through education, mindful awareness and physical exercise. By 2050, Singapore is projected to be growing old faster than any society in the world with mental disorders being one of the largest contributors towards early death and disability (10.2%). There is a growing urgency for innovative strategies to combat rising mental health issues and raise community awareness and support in Singapore. "Remember Me" is a theatrical music performance comprising of songs, drama and educational dialogues. Through vignettes from the emotional journey of Amah Lucy, who struggles to come to terms with dementia and its consequences for her family, herself, and her treasured memories, the audience is transported into the world of people with Dementia from an individual perspective. This concert aims to raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with Dementia, and its impact on patients, their family and caregivers.

Esplanade Presents The Far Side of ...
“This is Lepage at his very best, showing his talent for forging unexpected connections and appealing simultaneously to hearts and minds.”– The Guardian“It is a remarkable play, performed by a truly remarkable actor. It is a sad, funny, astonishing, brilliant, interesting, thought-provoking and utterly energizing play.”– The Australian"A stunning theatrical work that makes the universe more understandable while also making it more mysterious. You can’t ask much more than from a work of art.”– The Boston GlobeAn international space race to the moon. An inevitable domestic reconciliation. A journey of pure theatrical magic.Set against a backdrop of the race to the moon between the Americans and the Russians, The Far Side of the Moon casts its cosmic gaze on Philippe, a struggling introverted philosopher, and his younger brother André, a successful TV weatherman—an estranged pair drawn together, coming to grips with the death of their mother.Internationally renowned Canadian theatre visionary Robert Lepage’s iconic The Far Side of the Moon premiered in Québec in 2000, and has since been presented in over 45 cities all around the world. Performed solo by the critically acclaimed Yves Jacques, Lepage’s master work of poignant storytelling is visually stunning and technically exquisite, an emotionally arresting exploration of both outer and inner space.About Robert Lepage and Ex MachinaRobert Lepage is a Canadian playwright, actor, film director, and stage director, recognised as an evocative scenographer and a magical storyteller. His company Ex Machina, which he started in 1994, is known to be one of the world’s most innovative companies, approaching projects with investigative workshops and ensemble-led research.Ex Machina’s creative team believes that the performing arts—dance, opera, music—should be mixed with recorded arts—filmmaking, video art and multimedia. It believes that there must be meetings between scientists and playwrights, set painters and architects, and between artists from Québec and the rest of the world. From these gatherings, it believes that new artistic forms will emerge.Lepage has been acknowledged by Le Monde as “a maestro of today’s multimedia theatre”. He has also been described as “a transformational catalyst as Peter Brook” who “[creates] theatre for people who don’t like theatre”.

“The Sinfonietta blended rigour with the expressive depth in Hans Abrahamsen’s Schnee." – The GuardianRegarded as one of the world’s finest contemporary classical ensemble, London Sinfonietta returns to the Esplanade Concert Hall with three innovative and expressive works written within the last 30 years.Monumental and ethereal, Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen’s Schnee reflects the composer’s fascination with winter by offering multiple aural perspectives of snow—from the delicacy of a single snowflake, whispering as it falls from the sky, to vast impenetrable snowdrifts and snow-laden landscapes.Equally evocative is Oliver Knussen’s set of four miniature works, Songs Without Voices—The first three being complete poems with each syllable “set” to music for instruments (without voice); and the last featuring the cor anglais. Together with OpusNovus, London Sinfonietta will begin the evening with an encounter of the unexpected with Singapore composer Diana Soh’s Modicum, a work consisting of seven short movements, the sequence of which is rearranged for every performance.ProgrammeDiana Soh Modicum (2018) **Oliver Knussen Songs Without Voices (1992)IntermissionHans Abrahamsen Schnee (2008)** Performed by London Sinfonietta together with OpusNovusFind out more about Hans Abrahamsen's Schnee.Catch After Hours: Steve Reich’s Double Sextet by OpusNovus at the Annexe Studio right after.London Sinfonietta YouTubeLondon Sinfonietta SpotifyLondon Sinfonietta InstagramLondon Sinfonietta Twitter
