A New Chamber Opera
Mila is an original chamber opera that explores the plight of Hong Kong’s domestic foreign workers through the tensions and relationships within a Hong Kong family—an American husband, his Cantonese wife, their son, and their domestic helper Mila from the Philippines. This hour-long opera features composer Eli Marshall, playwright and librettist Candace Chong, director Chu Hei Chan, conductor Neal Goren leading the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble, and a cast of performers from Hong Kong, Manila, and the United States.
The four-member cast includes Manila-based soprano Stefanie Quintin in the title role, Hong Kong-born soprano Amanda Li as Ma’am, New York-based bass-baritone Joseph Beutel as Sir and Hong Kong-born soprano Joanna Shao as both The Boy and The Girl.
Co-presented with Asia Society Hong Kong.
