Mila: Chamber Opera Commissioned by Asia Society Hong Kong Center (World Premiere)
9 Jan

Synopsis:

Mila is a domestic helper from the Philippines hired by a family of three in Hong Kong. New to the city, Mila remains hardworking, patient and determined to please her employers despite their fussy and negative attitudes. As tension and distance arise between her employers (husband and wife), Mila becomes greatly concerned over her little master’s suicidal inclination, a situation that touches an old wound from Mila’s past. With the boy’s parents too self-occupied and focused on finding faults and placing blame on others for their own affairs, Mila is left to be the only one aware that the boy needs protection and rescuing from his unstable state...
