Nam Hwa Opera presents the world premiere of The Severing Sword, a brand-new Teochew Opera adapted from a beloved wuxia novel by Liang Yu Sheng.

Acclaimed Singaporean director Goh Boon Teck (Artistic Director, Toy Factory) brings to life playwright Huang Jin Feng’s dramatic script that is riddled with forbidden love, crippling betrayals and heart wrenching tragedy. Alongside the evocative score by celebrated Teochew Opera composer Wang Qing Su, The Severing Sword marks a new frontier in Singapore Teochew Opera with its bold innovations with the traditional artform.

The Severing Sword is Teochew Opera like you’ve never seen before.

<Synopsis>

Blinded by his ambition to become the greatest swordsman in the realm, Wu Yang accidentally pushed his pregnant wife Xue Mei into a river in the midst of a heated battle. Unknown to him, Xue Mei was rescued and raised their son Xuan Ji while harbouring a growing resentment for Wu Yang’s betrayal.

Years later, Xue Mei sent Xuan Ji on a mission to seek revenge against Wu Yang. In the midst of his treacherous journey, Xuan Ji met with an accident but was saved by a beautiful maiden Su Su. Both Xuan Ji and Su Su fell deeply in love with one another, but little did they know that their fates were intertwined more deeply than they could have ever imagined….
