Chorus of the Opera Society of Hong Kong
The Opera Society of Hong Kong was founded by a group of dedicated and enthusiastic singers. They come from all walks of life and share a common desire to promote opera and musical theatre to the people of Hong Kong. Since 1992, Chorus of the Opera Society of Hong Kong has performed in Urban Council's productions of Verdi's Otello, Rigoletto, La Traviata, Aida, Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor and Puccini's Turandot and La Boheme, under the direction of Chorusmaster and Chairman Raymond Fu. In 1996, the Chorus presented 'A Night at the Opera' in association with Hong Kong Sinfonietta with great success.

1997 was another exciting year for the Chorus. Performances have included Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with Sir Neville Marriner and Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields presented by the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts; Prokoflev's Alexander Nevsky as well as the New Year's Concert with Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus; Hong Kong Ballet's Emperor and the Nightingale; and the Concert Celebrating the Reunification of Hong Kong with China.

In 1998, the Society took part in Provisional Regional Council's first operetta production The Merry Widow by Lehar in January and J. S. Bach's St Matthew Passion presented by Radio 4, RTHK, both with raving reviews.

This February the Society has participated in Hong Kong Arts Festival's chamber opera Night Banquet by Guo Wenjing. After presenting its first public concert 'Opera Passion' in March, sponsored by Hong Kong Arts Development Council, Chorus members are busy preparing for the Die Fledermaus production as well as their biennial re-audition before the next opera production this fall.
