Sì. Mi chiamano Mimì – PUCCINI Gala
by LIN Ling-hui and Her Friends (Cancelled)
In 2019, LIN Ling-hui performed in Tosca with the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) directed by LIN Hwai-min, and the audience was moved to tears.
In Spring 2020, LIN will be joined with CHOI Seung-jin, a Korean tenor enjoying an active career in Europe, to perform favorite arias and duets of all time by Puccini from Madama Butterfly, Tosca, La bohème, and Turandot. The audience will surely be once again moved by their stellar performance.
There will be surtitles and on-site commentary by CHIAO Yuan-pu, a renowned local music critic. Thus, any fear for not understanding the content should be quelled, and the only fear should be the fear of not being able to secure a ticket.
LIN vividly portrayed Tosca’s jealousy and tears. Every move she made flowed naturally with her vocal interpretation of the role. The audience was moved by what they saw, what they heard, and what they felt. During the intermission, some of us music lovers were gathering together to discuss the presentation, and all of us, without a single exception, were moved to tears by her spectacular performance.
Tzu-Chien from the Nightingale Foundation
The beauty of LIN’s voice lies not in excessive embellishment, but in her active effort to communicate genuine emotions.

Watching the performance today made me cry out loud in the concert hall!!! After LIN finished singing, I cried so hard that I could not applaud!

Che gelida manina
Sì. Mi chiamano Mimì
Ehi! Rodolfo! ... O soave fanciulla
E lucevan le stelle
Mario! Mario! Mario! ... Qual occhio al mondo
Un bel dì vedremo
Piu non resisto! ... Tu che di gel sei cinta
La Fanciulla del West
Ch'ella mi creda
