4/11/2021 - 6/11/2021
The West Kowloon Cultural District

An experimental production of Kunqu and traditional Japanese music

GuoGuang Opera Company (Taiwan) and Yokohama Noh Theater (Japan) embarked on a three-year creative collaboration incorporating dance, shamisen, contemporary and traditional music and puppetry into an experimental new production. Based on the Kunqu An Embroidered Robe and invoking elements from the Noh classic Matsukaze, this production brings a familiar Chinese folk tale to life in ways never performed before.

Music composed by renowned shamisen master Mozibei Tokiwazu V with lyrics by Yokohama Noh Theatre artistic director Masayuki Nakamura. Taiwan’s Kunqu star Wen Yuhang received special training in Japanese dance to integrate Kunqu performance with traditional Japanese music.

Before the Dream of an Embroidered Robe, GuoGuang will perform a brief excerpt from the Kunqu classic Peony Pavilion in its original form.

See tradition and innovation in a single night - don’t miss this double bill exploring the future of Asian theatre heritage.
