In March of 2014, Asia Society in Hong Kong held a spring dinner entitled "Primavera" to celebrate 500 years of Italian presence in the region. On this occasion, world renowned Hong Kong tenor Warren Mok and soprano Joyce Wah-Sheung Wong gave performances taking "a contemporary Asian look at the splendors of Italian art." Mok is one of "China's Three Tenors" and has appeared in over 60 operas over three decades across Europe, North America, and Asia. 

Each week for "Throwback Thursday" (#TBT), we'll reach into our archives to find a photo from the organization's 60-year history. Some photos will feature important moments, some will feature important people, and others still will just be photos we love. Do you have an Asia Society photo you'd like us to consider including in this series? Please email the photo and any related details to photos@theasiablog.org (we regret that we won't be able to respond directly to each inquiry).
