A timeless story of love and betrayal
As a partner of Arts Centre Melbourne and official sponsor of Cho Cho, AXF were delighted to attend the opening night along with a number of guests in October 2013.
Cho Cho is a wonderful reimagining of the tragic tale of Madame Butterfly – a musical drama about a young Chinese girl who longs for the return of her lover, an American Naval Officer.
Written by Daniel Keane, one of Australia’s leading playwrights, and featuring an original music score by famous Chinese composer Cheng Jin, Cho Cho is directed by world-renowned puppetry director Peter Wilson (King Kong and The Dragon Child).
On opening night, Scott Irwin and Wang Zheng gave incredibly powerful and moving performances. A few tears may have been shed!
