Untold is an "anti-opera" exploring transnational Chinese identities by composer Alex Ho and creative director Julia Cheng, and performed by Keith Pun and Tangram.

Co-created by composer Alex Ho and creative director and choreographer Julia Cheng, Untold weaves together movement and music into an intricate tapestry of colours, sounds, memories, and dreams, imagining a more hopeful future for Ye Xian and those who come after.

Untold began its journey in 2019 as a 45 minutes version which won the George Butterworth Award for Outstanding New Work. HERE AND THERE - UNTOLD won the FEDORA Opera Prize 2023 as part of the HERE AND THERE project of O. Festival for Opera. Music. Theatre. with creative director Rajiv Bhagwanbali.
