backstage pt.1

As you can see by the post's title, this is the first of a series of pictures taken at my current production, Dama Orchestra's Butterfly Lovers. The story of Zhu Yingtai, the daughter of a wealthy landlord who defies tradition and customs and deceives her parents into allowing her to attend school. Disguised as a man, she goes and meets Liang Shangbo, a bookworm of sorts. She falls in love with him but cannot reveal her identity. He feels the same way but is confused by his feelings for this 'man' but all begins to unravel once Yingtai is summoned home under the pretense that her mother is ill.

I really like this photo. It looks like you enter another world when you climb up those steps. Which I guess you do. Glad to hear your show is going so well - and singing in Mandarin!

Leo bro...can't really figure out the photo at first, silly me...anywaz about quitting: I once met a young lady who is a phychologist on a plane, she recommended hynopsis therapy and said usually it can be done in about 4 sessionis...just for your information. ;p

That gives me goosebumps, reminding me of when I did stage shows, and the amazing feeling you have just before going on stage. Good one Edwin.

Anyway, all the best for you, Ed!
