Event Details

The Pawned Wife is a blend of traditional Teochew opera and contemporary theatre, featuring an international award-winning production team and local talents!

The production brings to life the tale of a poor rural family in China. Unable to pay rent due to crop failure, they reluctantly agree to the landlord’s demand to have the farmer’s wife pawned as his concubine for three years in exchange for money to treat their sick son. Despite hardships and mistreatment, the wife longs for her family and promises to return after the debt is settled. Three years later, she returns to find her son Chunbao dying. Devastated, torn between her past and present, she can only pray for her children’s well-being and dream of a reunion that will never be.

Conducted in Teochew (with English and Chinese surtitles).

Admission Rule

Suitabale for all ages.
