What is Opera Sull'Aria - Aerial Opera?
In early April 2017, the Aerial Opera project (now Opera Sull'Aria) was launched by soprano Etta Fung and aerialist Solveiga Baltusyte.
Opera Sull'Aria is a combination of two thrilling art forms: classical vocal arts and aerial silks. It is a unique combo that aims to inspire the audience to be daring and creative.
The first performances took place on July 11 & 12 at the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre in Hong Kong with great success.
Etta has been interviewed by the South China Morning Post; KHOU on Chanel 11 in Houston, Texas; China Daily, HOKK Fabrica and 果籽 of the Hong Kong Apple Daily. Interview links can be found on this page.
Etta Fung was invited to sing the role of Amour on aerial silks at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Alberta, Canada in July 2018 and received critical acclaim.
