La Perichole is an "opera bouffe" (a genre of late 19th century French operetta) and musical comedy, based on a piece written by Offenbach and staged extravagantly by Jerome Savary.

CHORUS OF THE OPERA SOCIETY OF HONG KONG
The Opera Society of Hong Kong was established in 1992 and has performed more than 15 operas and much of the standard choral repertoire since then.  Apart from working with famous orchestras such as the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, the choir also sang with the Anonymous 4.  The CD Fruits on the Tree, which was recorded in May 2002 and published by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, received great critical acclaim, "well-balanced voice parts, sensational singing, a first class chorus in Hong Kong."
