A beloved Cantonese opera by the genre’s famous playwright Tong Tik-sang

(Part 1 - Nov 7, 2:30pm; Part 2 - Nov 7, 7:30pm)

A heart-stirring work about love in a time of war, Praying to the Moon is one of the all-time favourites of Cantonese opera. Adapted by Tong Tik-sang, Cantonese opera’s famous playwright, this full-length version will be presented in two parts by an impressive cast of young Cantonese opera stars, under the guidance of Cantonese opera veteran Sun Kim-long.

The HKAF is proud to restage this performance after its cancellation in March 2020 due to the pandemic. The programme was originally part of the Four Southern Opera Classics series celebrating the ancient art of nanxi, from which the more refined works of Cantonese opera, kunqu and other regional operas have evolved.

Another piece A Thorn Hairpin, starring on-and-off-screen couple Liza Wang and Law Kar-ying, will be staged at Xiqu Centre on 4 and 5 November. For details, please click here.
