Souvenir

What Sing’theatre presents a fantasia on the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, a celebrated opera singer—who couldn’t sing. The hilarious and heartwarming tale stars British actress Leigh McDonald as the socialite with a passion for performing the opera, and Singapore’s favourite comedian Hossan Leong as her accompanist, Cosme McMoon. A story about fulfilling your dreams, the play follows the heiress as she defies the ridicule and public opinion to produce and stage her own concerts, filling Carnegie Hall to capacity. Catch the production on its final run this weekend.
