A Macau Experimental Theatre/Music Picnic/Point View Art Association (Macau/Toronto) Production

This elegant musical drama tells the story of a respected diplomat and a Chinese opera star who fall hopelessly in love, only to find themselves caught in a web of deceit and betrayal. When the opera star is revealed as a spy – and a man – the two must face the prospect of their mutual downfall. 

Based on a true story that rocked the diplomatic world, Mr. Shi and His Lover is an intimate portrayal of forgiveness and redemption – because the heart wants what it wants.

Performed in Mandarin with English surtitles.
