During Christmas season of 2014, Siam Opera presented ‘The Magic Flute’ again. They have done it once in 2006. I guess this rendition has been designed to be funnier. As it turns out, it has been hilarious. Siam Philharmonic Orchestra was conducted by Trisdee Na Patalung, who received very good review from the Opera magazine when he did it in 2006.

I noticed that the soprano vocalist performing Pamina part was a Thai. That was a bit surprising because she did a very good job. I only found out after the show that she was Nadlada Thamtanakom. This high spirited young lady has been trained as vocalist in Belgium Conservatory and just returned home last year.

A day after the opera, there was the annual New Year Concert by Siam Sinfonietta and Nadlada was there again. She sang His Majesty’s ‘Falling Rain’, in the same version that Siam Sinfonietta had received standing ovation during their performance at Carnegie Hall in the middle of the year. It was beautifully done with her clear voice. Another star is about to shine, I think.
