Om Encounter

Laugh hard beneath a moonless sky

 

The renowned actor, who had been playing the lead female role, suddenly quit and married a woman? What a huge crisis in this all-male Cantonese opera troupe! The urgent recruitment brought unexpected responses! In the midst of all chaos, everyone with their own ambitions competed fiercely! This summer, Yat Po Singers will bring you another hilarious original A Cappella theatre production Om Encounter!

With Michael Lam as the playwright, Ng Cheuk Yin as the composer, Leung Pak Kin as the lyricist, and Anna Lo as the choral director, Om Encounter combines A Cappella with elements of Cantonese operabreaching the boundary between Chinese and Western arts forms. Taking the essence from the segment of Encounter in Nunnery from the Cantonese opera treasure The Flower PrincessOm Encounter presents a modern perspective of the encounter with crazy and humorous plots, wandering between friction and truth, theatre and reality.
