A Korean Classic in Cantonese Opera: Lady Spring Fragrance

Why We Recommend it

One of Korea’s three most famous ancient literary classics gets a fresh Cantonese opera adaptation.


This cross-cultural production adapts Lady Spring Fragrance—a well-known Korean folk tale—to the stage. Set in imperial China, the opera tells the story of Cheng Chunxiang (Lady Spring Fragrance), a courtesan’s daughter, and Li Wenyan, the son of a magistrate, who strive to hold on to their passionate love despite their class differences. With a whole bright future ahead of him, will Li fulfil his duty of filial piety by listening to his family, or follow his heart and remain faithful to Li?

Please note that the Cantonese production will be supplemented with both English and Chinese subtitles.
