The Stage Art of “Reverie of an Empire”
As 2011 marked the 100th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution , our Artistic Director Anthony Chan had written a script based on history that how Yuan Shikai, a Chinese military and government official who rose to power during the late Qing dynasty, was finally frustrated in a short-lived attempt to restore hereditary monarchy in China, with himself as the Hongxian Emperor. Besides Chan’s script, this making-of publication also comprises history recap, analytical essays and collective memories of the creative team.
