Asia Society Hong Kong Center Launches World Premiere of Chamber Opera “Mila”


Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) announces that the world premiere of its chamber opera Mila will open on January 18, 2018. Three years in its making, Mila brings to light the richness and complexity in Hong Kong’s cultural composition – in both its team of creative and performing artists and its story line, which focuses on some of the unique and contemporary characteristics and issues of Hong Kong’s social fabric. Mila is a four-scene chamber opera with original music and libretto, live vocal and instrumental musicians. Its creative team features well-known talents in Hong Kong and internationally, including American-born composer Eli Marshall, award-winning and sought-after Hong Kong playwright Candace Chong, award-winning theater veteran Chu Hei Chan as director, and Neal Goren, Founder, Artistic Director and Conductor of the Gotham Chamber Opera in New York City as its music director. The performance will be sung in English, Cantonese and Tagalog by a cast of artists from Hong Kong, the Philippines and the USA.
