From Christmas carols to New Year concerts and a Chinese edition of The Nutcracker, Shanghai Oriental Art Center's festive season comprises 56 productions taking place through Feb 16.

Among the most anticipated of productions is the Jan 11 recital by Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais, who will be performing in China for the first time.

Born in 1979, the renowned Opolais has performed at the Metropolitan Opera New York, Wiener Staatsoper in Austria, Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin and Teatro alla Scala in Milan.

During her trip to Shanghai, the Latvian will present highlights from operas such as La Rondine and Madame Butterfly, as well as art songs by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov.

"She will give this one and only concert during this China tour, so this is a very rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of the diva," says Gu Shengyin, a spokesperson with SHOAC.

On New Year's Eve at SHOAC, the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra will present two concerts at 7:30 pm and 10:30 pm conducted by Laszlo Kovacs. On the two following nights, Berliner Symphonikier will play under the baton of Lior Shambadal. Aside from festive favorites such as Waltz and Polka by Richard and Johann Strauss II, the orchestra will also play Chinese compositions such as the Dragon Boat Ballad, adapted from a traditional Chinese folk song.
