Refined [Purple Hair-pin]

The new generation of the classic piece Purple Hairpin is conceived to keep up with the times while catering to modern art aesthetics. This exquisite stage production is the combined efforts of Cantonese opera masters from Hong Kong, Foshan, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou. These five groups of experts refined the traditional Purple Hairpin performance from four hours down to two and a half hours. No expenses were spared in designing the music, sets, lighting and costumes. The innovative approach of using a long piece of silk as backdrop allowed fast scene changes. With fusion of light and shadow, the love story of Purple Hairpin is presented on stage as never before.
