Experimental Yue Opera “Destiny of Rebirth” by the Shanghai Yue Opera Group scheduled on 18 and 19 October 2019 (Friday and Saturday) is cancelled. Please click here for ticket refund arrangement. Ticketing Enquiries: (852) 2200 0022


Investigating female identity in the modern world, Destiny of Rebirth is an experimental Yue opera based on a romantic lyrical poem from the 1700s. Written by Qing dynasty woman poet Chen Duansheng, the original work tells the story of a young woman who disguises herself as a man in order to enter the world of court politics alongside her lover.

As well as blurring gender boundaries, the Shanghai Yue Opera Group’s avant-garde production blurs the boundary between stage and auditorium, inviting the audience to move among the performers and experience the plot from the perspective of those involved, in a fully immersive encounter.
