From August 2022, as part of Creative Tomorrow, the Tea House Theatre Troupe presents a new original production. Devised and performed by an expert team, the 90-minute drama blends live performance, robotics and state-of-the-art audio and visual technology – immersing the audience in a magical tale about the history and heritage of Cantonese opera.

 

A young musician returns to the family’s Qing-era ancestral home and discovers a lost trove of Cantonese opera treasures that once belonged to a great-grandparent. A dream-like encounter with the ancestor’s spirit offers a new perspective on the significance of the traditional art. Through highlight excerpts of familiar productions and musical styles – presented with live performance, recordings, three-dimensional soundscapes, and state of the art robotics and digital technology – the tale showcases the diversity of the Cantonese opera experience.

 

Perfect for the whole family, The Magic Tea House is Hong Kong’s first ever Cantonese opera production featuring robotics and AI technology. Join us for a fun and engaging new perspective on an age-old heritage art.
