A fantasy journey through the history and future of Cantonese opera
From June 2023, the new season of the Tea House Theatre’s regular original programme offers a new look at Cantonese opera and traditional Chinese music through an innovative framed story presentation.
The 90-minute performance follows the thoughts of a Cantonese opera actor, who travels through time and reimagines the future of his craft in a fast-changing, digitised world. The tale illustrates the richness and diversity of the art form through a highlight selection of familiar songs and instrumental music pieces, with Cantonese opera excerpts written by legendary librettist Tong Tik-sang and a new piece by acclaimed local actor-playwright Keith Lai.
Staged in the traditional setting of the Tea House Theatre and enhanced with state-of-the-art audio and visual technology, Magic Tea House 2.0 – Dreams of the Future is performed by our talented Tea House Rising Stars Troupe and directed by veteran icon of stage and screen Law Ka-ying and Naomi Chung.
Join us for a fun and engaging introduction to an age-old heritage art – perfect for the whole family and audiences of all backgrounds.
