The chamber opera Women Like Us is a singing tribute to Hong Kong’s literary grande dame Xi Xi and the two protagonists of her beloved short stories “A Girl Like Me” and “The Cold”. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Women Like Us was deferred until the 49th HKAF. But it fortuitously gave the creators and directors more time to review the work. Composer Daniel Lo and director Olivia Yan will share their thoughts and experience of the creative process throughout the production.
Speaker: Daniel Lo (Composer), Olivia Yan (Director)
