HERE AND THERE - UNTOLD brings together an opera, vocal projects and communities that deal with diaspora. Untold stories of people that are trying to find connection; a search of how to connect to their homeland and who they are in the country where they live. But also, how does the diaspora influences the art they create.
The multi-disciplined opera UNTOLD by the British-Chinese composer Alex Ho is part of the HERE AND THERE project of O. Festival for Opera. Music. Theatre. and the creative director Rajiv Bhagwanbali.
World Premiere: 22 April 2023 - Brugge, Belgium
UNTOLD is an opera by Alex Ho exploring British-Chinese identity through music and movement, directed by Julia Cheng and performed by Keith Pun and Tangram. If you know Cinderella, you know Ye Xian. Predating the European fairy-tale, Ye Xian follows a path familiar to many in search of a place to belong. Untold reveals new twists conjuring to life Ye Xian's story of the transnational journey between and beyond different cultures. 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.
