This unique show features Singapore's indefatigable Cantonese Opera doyen Joanna Wong performing at the age of 80. In this show, she will perform two opera excerpts, namely, "More Haste Less Speed" from "The Arrogant Princess" in which she performs with her long time stage partner Lou Mee Wah, a Cultural Medallion winner whom she groomed, and "Punishing Her Husband" from "Warriors of The Yang Family" in which Joanna Wong partners Neng Tong Ming, a veteran Cantonese Opera star from China now based in Singapore. The show unfolds with a verse written by Leslie Wong and performed by an array of artists portraying the opera journey of Joanna Wong over the last few decades; while the finale will be an opera parade of fifty selected opera enthusiasts whom Joanna Wong has imparted her skills over the years. The names of these fifty artists are embedded in a song specially written by Leslie Wong sung by lead veteran singer Kwan Siu Ping and others. In between, the programme comprises opera snippets extracted from Joanna Wong's favourite performances spanning over the last decades. Each snippet, lasting only a few minutes will be performed by some of these aforesaid opera enthusiasts.

For all the three performances presented by Chinese Theatre Circle Ltd (CTC), CTC will collaborate with the China Guangzhou Hong Dou Cantonese Opera Troupe and Kreta Ayer Community Club Cantonese Opera Group. All three performances will be accompanied by Chinese and English subtitles.

Tickets are priced at $50, $30, $20, & $10 for performances are available online through ticketing agent Botempus and Chinese Opera Teahouse at 5 Smith Street in Chinatown. Senior citizens, students and members of PAssion Card are entitled to 20% discount.
