The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) has been undertaking a spectacular 4-year musical project to perform Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle, with our Music Director Jaap van Zweden, to all of Hong Kong. In the third year of the project, HK Phil will be presenting the Siegfried opera-in-concert – the third chapter of The Ring Cycle – on 19 and 22 January 2017.

To bring the story and excitement of the project to the community, HK Phil welcomes you to join the “Become a Music Painter” Workshop and be inspired by the experience of Wagner, who expanded his music to the creative world of visual arts, drama and integrated theatre.

The Workshop welcomes parents and teachers to bring their children and students to join. All individuals are also welcome.

Participants will be invited to be “Music Painters”. They will be introduced to the music of Wagner’s Ring Cycle and its third chapter – Siegfried – through interesting presentation, music appreciation and interactive activities. They will also get the chance to create their own artwork about the story of Siegfried.
