The Moment

Jaap van Zweden  / Mar 9, 2018
"About my experience with Beijing and its very warm audience, I feel very at home here. I think that my last performance here were, for me personally, a wonderful experience, with very knowledgeable and very warm public who were really interested in what we’re bringing."Jaap van Zweden, Music Director Designate of the New York Philharmonic, stages two concerts with the 176-year-old orchestra on March 8th-9th at the NCPA Concert Hall, indicating a remarkable return to Beijing after its NCPA debut ten years ago. Violinist Ryu Goto and pianist Yuja Wang join in the two performance respectively.

Plácido Domingo  / Jan 30, 2018
“It’s been ten years to have this theatre, to have all these productions, and to have so many artists coming. Definitely China is really becoming one of the countries that love (classical) music and things are going to grow.”
Maestro Domingo forged a strong bond with the NCPA in 2012, when the 20th Plácido Domingo's Operalia: The World Opera Competition was held here. In 2013, he sang the title role in the NCPA opera Nabucco for the first time, and later in NCPA operas Simon Boccanegra and Macbeth, rendering the classic characters in Verdi’s operas to life. Thaïs is the fourth operatic collaboration between the maestro and the NCPA.
