PresenterChina NCPA Chorus

NCPA Chorus was established on December 8th, 2009, whose members were carefully selected from famous music schools in and out of China. Now the Chorus invites WU Lingfen as the conductor, with many artists well-known in China and abroad giving instructions. Affiliated to NCPA, the highest palace of performing arts in China, the Chorus adheres to NCPA's guiding principles of "for the people, for the arts, and for the world". The Chorus mainly stages operas and concerts, and also takes part in kinds of cultural communication and arts outreach events.

Ever since its establishment, the Chorus has actively performed in more than 20 operas of NCPA production, such as NCPA's original operas Xi Shi, The Chinese Orphan, and The Ballad of Canal, as well as other classical operas in and out of China: The White-Haired Girl, The Red Guards on Honghu Lake, Le Nozze di Figaro, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, L'italiana in Algeri, Rigoletto, La Traviata, Otello, Der Fliegende Hollander, Lohengrin, Carmen, Turandot and Tosca, etc. Its artistic quality receives rave acclaims from both the critics and the audience.

Besides operas, the Chorus has participated in many grand vocal works and themed concerts, such as Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Mahler's Symphony No.2 and No.8, and the grand music and dance epic Road to Revive, etc. As NCPA's resident chorus, it has been to Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and Japan to participate in performances and arts exchange, both to wide acclaims.

The Chorus has cooperated with many well-known artists ever since its establishment, receiving high praises from them all. Plácido Domingo once said it was his honour to cooperate with these talented young artists; Lorin Maazel ever praised it "a chorus full of passion", so and so forth. On the stage of NCPA, the Chorus has cooperated with such directors as Francesca Zambello, Giancarlo Del Monaco, CHEN Xinyi, CAO Qijing, LIAO Xianghong, such conductors as Lorin Maazel, Daniel Oren, LÜ Jia, LI Xincao, ZHANG Guoyong, such singers as Plácido Domingo, Leo Nucci, Inva Mula, Brandon Jovanovich, DAI Yuqiang, WEI Song, Warren Mok, HE Hui, Dilbèr, ZHANG Liping, to name just a few. With more than a hundred performances each year, the Chorus is surely to play an active role in the further development of NCPA.
