"Le toréador" (1849) is a comic opera by Adolphe Adam, a French composer best known for the ballet "Giselle". The story is of a ménage-a-trois between an erstwhile soprano, her oft-absent and unfaithful husband, and a previous lover, a flautist in the orchestra. The work features famous variations on the folk-song "Ah! vous dirai-je, maman" (better known as "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" in the English-speaking world). This semi-staged performance resets the story in contemporary Hong Kong.


《鬥牛士》(Le toréador,1849)是法國作曲家阿道夫·亞當(Adolphe Adam)的一部喜歌劇,亞當以芭蕾舞劇《吉賽爾》而聞名。這個故事講述一位過氣女高音、與她經常缺席且不忠的丈夫,以及她的舊情人(管弦樂隊中的長笛手)之間的三角關係。劇目亮點包括著名民歌"啊!媽媽,讓我告訴你"(即為人熟識的"一閃一閃,小星星")的著名變奏為特色。演出將以半舞台形式呈現,故事重置於當下的香港。
