Searching for Utopia
Staging a New Opera
Open Rehearsal/ Talk

To create a chamber opera about Kang Youwei, a visionary thinker in modern Chinese history and his vision for a perfect China – his Chinese Utopia – is no easy task. Take a behind-the-scenes look at its creative process. In a series of talks, meet-the-artist session, backstage tour and exhibition, come and see all aspects of this production up close.


See inside the creative process that underpins the staging of contemporary opera by visiting the final stages of rehearsal for Datong: The Chinese Utopia, masterminded by director Tang Shu-wing. This is a chance to gain rare access to the production and a unique opportunity for audiences who plan to attend the performance proper.
