OPERA
Searching for Utopia
Utopia Backstage
Backstage Tour

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.

 

Take the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes of Datong: The Chinese Utopia. Guided by Mandy Tam, Datong’s costume designer, explore the workings of this chamber opera production and see costumes and accessories from the Qing Court – the Empress Dowager Cixi and the Guangxu Emperor – as well as those of a traditional Confucian scholar. Set designs span space and time, from the late Qing Dynasty through to the Cultural Revolution.
