Reincarnation of the Prunus Mume
02.09.2017 - 09.09.2017

Does true love equate possession?
Should one’s love be forsaken to fulfill the wishes of the beloved?


Tong Tik Sang’s classic The Reincarnation of the Red Plum has moved innumerable audiences; the Cantonese opera has also been adapted time and again as spoken drama. Artistic Director Anthony Chan models his new play on the celebrated script but focuses on the other woman in the love triangle—Lu Zhaorong. Lu and Li Huiniang fall in love with Pei Yu at the same time. Should Lu insist on love as possession, or generously offer her corpse to be reincarnated and occupied by another soul?


Co-written by Yuen Kai Chi, Golden Horse Award winner and A Chinese Ghost Story screenwriter, this play explores the time and space where humans and spirits intersect, taking the audience on a journey in search of true love.
