About the Performance
ADAMANTINA is Chinese opera with a whole new feel. Adapted from a poem published in 1985 by Taiwan poetic heavyweight Yang Mu (1940-2020), the story demonstrates a rarely-heard passage from "The Twelve Golden Women of Zhongling" in the classic novel Dream of the Red Chamber. The play elaborates on the supposed feelings and actions of Miao Yu, a Buddhist nun.
Following years of collaboration including their newest monodrama production in 2016's jazz/opera Lady Macbeth, as well as 2018 production planning with Cloud Gate Dance Theater, this play brings the talented trio of Charles Liu, Liu Hsin-Jan, and Blaire Ko togetherfor their first-ever public performance.
