“Everything is art.

Everything is politics.”

AI WEIWEI / 艾未未

“Mr. Shi and His Lover carries the full impact and provocative power of a grand theatrical drama”, “Jordan Cheng is mesmerizing” – Toronto Star

NNNN “An engaging, provocative evening for mind and ear that will intrigue lovers both of theatre and of opera”, “fiercely committed performances” – NOW Magazine

“Musically delightful”, “a constant delight”, “A show for the musically adventurous” – The Globe and Mail

An espionage scandal rocks the political world in this intriguing contemporary opera about the delusion of love. Featuring performers from Toronto and Macau, Mr. Shi and His Lover illuminates the real-life affair of a French diplomat in China who falls in love with a mysterious opera singer. But is she who she says she is? This classic tale is told through music inspired by Chinese opera and vintage pop from both East and West. Performed in Mandarin with English surtitles.

Approximate running time is 75 minutes, with no intermission.
