Calming the Chaotic Seas – 10% discount offer
“If regrets are inevitable in times of turmoil, let the seas carry all.”
 
Though reluctant, Cheung Po Tsai’s life was full of dares, risks, hatred and love. The gangster turned into an imperial official at last, hoping to serve the country and people’s wellbeing. However against his wishes, the choice caused great suffering to his comrades and left him die with regrets. History documents his deeds but not his emotions. Playwright Mandu, Director Dominic Cheung and Choreographer Yang Yuntao from Hong Kong Dance Company will reconstruct the complicated and confusing life of Cheung Po Tsai on stage.
