Event description

Description

The European première of CHAN Hing-yan’s three-act chamber opera Datong: The Chinese Utopia is presented by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) and produced by the Hong Kong Arts Festival (HKAF). Chronicling the 20th-century Chinese scholar KANG Youwei’s life and his vision for a global utopia of human equality and solidarity, Datong touches on Chinese philosophy and transports audiences to another time and place with fabulous voices and music.

Datong features a stellar cast of home-grown Hong Kong singers and musicians at the start of their international careers, accompanied by the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble under the baton of LIO Kuokman, formerly assistant conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra and laureate of the 2014 Evgeny Svetlanov Conducting Competition in France.
