Thanks to Mr Philip Eisenbeiss, Board Director of Opera Hong Kong, who arranged a special offer opportunity for our SAHK members to enjoy an interesting cultural evening.

The Land of Smiles was jointly produced by Opera Hong Kong and Theater Erfurt from Germany.

The Land of Smiles (Das Land des Lächelns) is a romantic operetta in three acts with a story by Franz Lehár set in Vienna and China in 1912. The German libretto was by Ludwig Herzer and Fritz Löhner-Beda.

The performance venue was at the Hong Kong Cultural Center in Tsimshatsui from May 7th till 9th, 2015. It was around 2 hours including an intermission.

I attended the last performance on Saturday, May 9th and enjoyed it.

Opera Hong Kong has agreed to let me post some of their stage photographs for our members who may have missed it but wish to have a glimpse.
