“The King of Nanyue”, as its name suggests, tells the story of Zhao Tuo, the first-generation “King of Nanyue” who founded the Nanyue Kingdom in 204 BC. From the 30-year-old to the 106-year-old mackerel’s back, the play reviews Zhao Tuo’s unique life course of more than 70 years, and writes a microcosm of the entire history of South Vietnam.

“The King of Nanyue” is a fine collection of Cantonese plays, and it is also a masterpiece of Cantonese heritage art. In addition to the million-dollar stage scenery, colorful costumes, and the customs and folklore of South Vietnam, this large-scale production has gathered almost all Cantonese cast members, and has gone through two generations of Cantonese. The succession of actors alternates. Director Wang Xiaodi said: “The King of Nanyue is a sign, marking the birth of a theater’s true repertoire. The reason why a repertoire can be preserved is that, on the one hand, its humanistic spirit and its dramatic value are not outdated. In part, it’s because we have such a good actor.”

As for how the play can still attract and emotionally connect with the audience more than ten years after its premiere, director Wang Xiaodi explained: “How can a play have eternal aesthetic value, I think, as long as it is from life From the angle of view, to study the problems of human beings – human spirit, personality and life, its value should be long-term. Therefore, in this play, we try to reflect Zhao Tuo in the background of such a big historical change This character. He can live more than 100 years, which is what interests me the most. Why does he live so long? What kind of character does he have? Where is his philosophy of life and his humanistic spirit? Concerns about the phenomenon of life, it is the study of people.”

If you don’t want to do any “homework” and just want to walk into the theater to relax and have a good time with the characters, the musical “Apolonia” is recommended. Before you know it, the environmental resident musical “Apolonia” has entered the third month of its resident performance in Yangcheng. After the show became popular in Shanghai last year, it began to land in Yangcheng on February 14 this year. Tianhe City has opened a long-term residency. Continuing the upsurge in Shanghai, the first round of February performance tickets for the Guangzhou show were sold out on the day of ticketing.

At present, it takes a lot of courage to introduce the open-style residency model into the domestic musical theater market, and “Apolonia” is one of the successful cases. The play focuses on environmental performances, and its stage mode is different from that of formal theaters. The live-action “bistro” is a small bar on the streets of New York in the 1930s in the play. There is no clear boundary between the stage and the auditorium. This kind of zero-distance “communication” unique to the small theater is also the unique charm of “Apolonia”.

In terms of plot, the musical “Apolonia” consists of a main line and two “plays within a play”. The plot is fast-paced and unpredictable. In the three cleverly choreographed stories, each actor is tasked with the task of playing multiple roles or even acting in reverse. Regardless of gender, status, or age, the three actors show the diverse charms of 12 characters in the play.

As “The Bistro” entered the third round of performances in Guangzhou, some audience members have already “played twice” and “played more”, some people want to see a certain actor they like, and some people want to experience more combinations of casts. The actors who have the same card but do not collide are randomly arranged and combined to bring the joy of “collecting cards”. Different combinations of Richard, Oscar and Steve show completely different auras and fresh chemical reactions. One of the “magic weapons” that the drama can perform for a long time.Return to Sohu, see more
