Field of Dreams – A Musical

When it comes to football, there should be no divide among us. Once upon a time, Lee Wai Tong, the King of Football in Hong Kong, led the Republic of China football team for the first time to compete in the Olympics in Berlin. The year was 1936. Eight football players from Lo Wai, a small fishing village in Tai Hang, Hong Kong, made history with their skills in football, taking their dreams and passion beyond Hong Kong, into the international arena. At a time when resources were hard to come by, it was faith and determination that took them the furthest in pursuing their dreams.

Premiered in 2008, staged again in Hong Kong in 2013, with live orchestra in 2017 and toured in Beijing, Field of Dreams is written and directed by Artistic Director Anthony Chan, with Golden Horse Award winner Leon Ko and Chris Shum as composer and lyricist respectively. This acclaimed musical was awarded Best Overall Performance, Best Original Music, Best Actor (Tragedy/Drama) and Top Ten Popular Productions at the Hong Kong Drama Awards for its premiere and promises to bring the audience an authentic, local story.
