Renowned Kunqu opera artist Kong Aiping’s re-interprets classical Chinese poetry

Hong Kong Music Series

  • Shaw Theatre, 100-110 Euston Road, London NW1 2AJ, 7.30pm

Hong Kong’s leading composer Law Wing-fai combines the natural timbres of Chinese musical instruments with theatre, poetry, song, dance and visual elements to cultivate a mood for reflection and an exploration of Chinese aesthetics.

Set against a serene garden, the main character Ru Yu recites and sings about the scenery around her. Eventually she realises that what she sees and hears are illusory, and slowly comes to achieve enlightenment and transcendence.  On the stage, amidst the light strums of the pipa and voice, everything enters into a realm of meditation and contemplation.

The show also features singing, recitation and dance by the renowned Kunqu artist Kong Aiping, winner of the Excellence in the Promotion of Kunqu Opera Award co-presented by UNESCO and the Ministry of Culture of China. Although rooted in Chinese opera, in this production Kong is breaking new ground in her interpretation of classical Chinese poetry.
