On Valentine’s Day, would you like to go with your loved one to an extravagant dinner with oysters flown in from France or rather go to an exciting concert of romantic music with a 70-piece symphony orchestra or spend the evening curled up on the sofa with your sweetheart watching a favourite Hollywood tearjerker and a glass of champagne?
Opera Siam’s "A Love Letter from Hollywood" gives you the chance to do all of the above — at a single event.
There’s the concert — join Siam Sinfonietta, Nadlada "Bow" Thamtanakom, and the Cherubim Choir — and a lot of oysters — for an incredible Valentine's evening — "A Love Letter from Hollywood" — a 100 years of the most romantic film music from the most iconic Hollywood films. From noble love to twisted love, from love across a crowded room to love across the galaxy, from epic love to obsessive love … this is music from the movies that shaped our lives. Maestro Somtow Sucharitkul takes us on a journey through the history of love in the movies. Tickets range from Bt500 to Bt1,500 — less with group discounts.
Siam Sinfonietta, equally known for its mastery of the hardest repertoire in classical music (Mahler, Bartok, Stravinsky) and its populist concerts such as its Star Wars, Harry Potter and “The Princess Concert” event, will field 70 musicians plus the sweet voices of the Cherubim Choir. Thai diva from the Belgian National Opera, Nadlada Thamtanakom, will assure all of us that our “heart will go on”.
There are add-ons. Get a VIP seat and a stupendous reception with seafood including imported oysters and free-flow Chandon when contributing Bt3,000, or donate Bt600 and enjoy the Sweetheart Reception in the Half Circle Room, with all-you-can-eat sushi and other delicacies and a glass of Chandon.
Special discounts: 5 per cent for five or more tickets, 10 per cent for 10 or more, and 20 per cent for 20 or more.
