CHINATOWN opera 3rd public workshop / 2 December at 2pm

CHINATOWN is a new opera by the renowned Madeleine Thien. Set in 1961, it looks at the people and cultures and stories of a great neighbourhood. We are now testing its text in front of live audiences.

Please join us on Monday 2 December, from 2 - 4:30pm at the Chinese Nationalist League Auditorium, second floor (with elevator), 537 Main Street, for a public workshop and talkback. Text-only. No music for another year. Join Maddie herself, and six professional actors, as we explore and beta-test the libretto in progress. Your comments are invaluable to us. Free, of course.

This event is particularly directed toward elders. Translation will be provided.

The complete opera will premiere in September 2021 at The Playhouse. Our thanks to The Vancouver Foundation, and the City of Vancouver, for generous support. We are very grateful.
