Footprints in the Snow
02.04.2016 - 13.04.2016

Opening Performance of the 10th Chinese Drama Festival 

Following such popular HKREP productions as The Legend of the Mad Phoenix and 1941Footprints in the Snow is another successful crossover presentation melding spoken drama and Cantonese opera on stage. In his last letter to his son Eric who moved to America for decades, legendary Cantonese opera playwright Yip Fei Hung confided that an unproduced script is under lock and key in a “Ying Seung” (“congealed box”). Arriving in Hong Kong to attend his father’s funeral, Eric hears that a new Cantonese opera troupe plans to present a lavish staging of this work. While searching for the script, Eric discovers more about his father’s life and love, including an unusual relationship with a retired actor who specialized in cross-dressing roles. A posthumous script reveals sensibilities hidden for a lifetime, leading to a struggle between two generations in their zeal to protect the legacy of Cantonese opera.

The world premiere of Footprints in the Snow inaugurated the Ko Shan Theatre’s New Wing in December 2014. Guest artist Wong Wan Choi was nominated for Best Supporting Actor (Tragedy/Drama) at the 24th Hong Kong Drama Awards; the premiere production also received a nomination in the Hong Kong Drama Awards’ Best Original Lyrics category.

HKRep Artistic Director Anthony Chan will direct HKREP’s company of veteran actors in Footprints in the Snow as the opening production of the 10th Chinese Theatre Festival (Hong Kong 2016).
