About Thunderstorm Shanghai Opera

Thunderstorm is an award-winning modern opera about family, society and corruption in Old Shanghai. Zhou Puyuan is the head of a wealthy, successful and seemingly happy Shanghai household. But a storm is gathering… for behind this veneer of respectability lies a web of intrigue, and a dark family secret. As corruption is exposed and his family disintegrates, Zhou is confronted with a changing society and the emergence of a new China.

Based on the acclaimed play by Cao Yu, and set to music by legendary composer Mo Fan, this lavish production of Thunderstorm is a beautiful evocation of the atmosphere of Old Shanghai and not to be missed.
