  • After the success of our previous night at the (Cantonese) Opera, Hong Kong Sacred Spaces would like to continue our streak with another FANTASTIC performance, a modern take on the celebrated "Emperor Wu of Han and His Jester Strategist" being performed at the upcoming Hong Kong Art Festival in March 2017.

    I know it seems like a long time from now but tickets sell out fast!

    Introduction from Arts Festival Website...

    "Behind every man of power is a man of wit.

    For nearly half a century, Emperor Wu of Han [masked] BC) ruled over a nation stretching from Wiman Joseon (now North Korea) to Central Asia.

    Emperor Wu of Han and his Jester Strategist explores the electrifying relationship between Emperor Wu and the charismatic and quick-witted courtier Dongfang Shuo during the founding years of the Han dynasty.

    A worthy intellectual foil to Emperor Wu, Dongfang Shuo’s propensity for jests and tricks both challenges and complements the Emperor’s temperament. Their fiery rapport stokes a determination in Emperor Wu to turn the Han Dynasty into a great empire, opening up Silk Road trade routes between East and West and raising himself into one of the most powerful monarchs in world history.

    Written by celebrated Cantonese opera performer Loong Koon-tin, emerging star Lai Yiu-wai, and Chinese opera educator and actor Lau Shun, this ground-breaking new opera charts the start of this Emperor’s extraordinary reign and the exceptional personalities of his court."

    As I indicated this is a "Prepaid" event. Tickets cost $320.00 HKD, price set by festival organizers. My role here is simply to purchase tickets for everyone after the funds have been received. Given the length of time between then and now I will be more than happy to mail the tickets to you if you provide me with an address. Tickets, once purchased are NOT REFUNDIBLE.

    Instructions to send payment are as follows:

    Please prepay via Account/ATM Transfer through Bank of China (HK) ( http://www.bochk.com/en/branch.html ) by 7 December, 2016. I'll collect the tickets the following day.

    You can also pay via PayPal @ [masked]. You'll need to pay a $3.50 fee set by PayPal for a total of $323.50.

    Bank of China (HK) Account No. 01289910234279. Please snap a photo of the advice/receipt with your NAME and email or mobile number along with code EWHHJ and send to [masked] or 9156 7940.

    Hello All,
    I've just received words that there will be NO English subtitles but an English language summery for us to follow along.
    Best,
    Justin
