The Chinese Artists Association of Hong Kong - Cantonese Opera "Seven Filial Kin" from "The Eighteen Libretti"

The present production is revived by the famous actor in Cantonese Opera, Sun Kim-long, who had performed this play in the 1970s and 1980s.  Based on the content of the production outline available, his own stage experience, relevant material he could find today, and the staging practice of the traditional paichangxi (formulaic plays), Sun created a new version by adding various theatrical traditions and elements.  For example, the delivery of lines will include guanhua (the official lingo), and 'borrowings' from the traditional paichangxi excerpts, such as Wang Yun Becoming a Celestial after Dying from Cold, Drawing the Live or Die Lots, Stopping the Entourage to Make an Appeal, and A Happy Ending.  All these attempts are to enrich this restaged production.

Hong Kong’s Maritime Miracle: The Story of Our City since 1945

Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum organises a special exhibition entitled Hong Kong’s Maritime Miracle: The Story of Our City since 1945.

Hong Kong’s pre-war maritime connections facilitated her growth of an enormous global manufacturing powerhouse after the War. Containerisation in the 1970s was a key component to continue and build on this success and Hong Kong’s container trade volumes grew exponentially. When Mainland China opened up its economy in 1978, Hong Kong then outsourced much of its manufacturing into the Greater Bay Area whilst retaining her lead in finance and services. The maritime trade continues to support the growth of the Greater Bay Area, with Hong Kong at its heart.
