This year the 32nd Macao International Music Festival (MIMF) features 16 programmes in a total of 22 excellent performances. The theme of this year’s Festival is “Enjoy – The Moment in music”, which is about seizing the moment and feeling the joy and fulfillment music provides.
The opening performance is an opera in two acts L’Elisir d’Amore by Gaetano Donizetti, and it allows audiences to witness the magical power of love amidst magnificent music. Other highlights include the Staatskapelle Dresden, with a history of over 400 years, conducted by Christian Thielemann, which delivers the entire cycle of Schumann’s symphonies in the closing concerts. Also, the Macao Orchestra and the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra jointly present Anton Bruckner’s magnum opus – the Symphony No. 8 in C Minor. Hoi Lei Lei and Raymond Vong will also showcase their talent in the concert Bravo Macao! and there are plenty more top musicians and orchestras from different parts of the world who will take the stage during the MIMF this autumn.
