This full-length opera is a hilarious comedy that tells the romance between the arrogant Princess Jun Rui and her Prince Consort Guo Ai in the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 907) in China. The Emperor betrothed Princess Jun Rui to Guo Ai following the victory over the rebels by the famous warriors of the Guo family.

The Princess, arrogant by nature, imposed a host of royal rites for Guo Ai to observe. She was so arrogant that she refused to pay homage to her father-in-law on his birthday as she considered him as one of her subjects. Her absence from the celebratory ceremony resulted in Guo Ai being ridiculed by his brothers and their wives.

Fuming with rage, Guo Ai returned to the palace and chided the Princess; and in a fit of anger, he slapped her on her face. The Princess felt so insulted and infuriated that she complained to the Emperor and the Empress. The witty Emperor seized this opportunity to inculcate filial values into the Princess, and through persuasion and a little coercion, managed to enlighten the Princess and resolved the dispute amicably.

This presentation is based on an old traditional script modified by Leslie Wong to make the opera more dramatic and exciting. The opera features upcoming talent Lo Siu Ling assuming the title role of Princess Jun Rui with Chan Mei Yin the lead actor portraying the role of Prince Consort Guo Ai. The opera has a big cast and spectacular scenes.

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.
