To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Melbourne University Chinese Music Group (CMG), together with the writer of CMG’s 2013 production ‘The Butterfly Lovers’, this year we will present a perfect combination of music, dance and theatre that challenges the traditional interpretation of love in Chinese musicals. ‘Nanjing, Beijing’ will make its debut in Melbourne in September 2015.
‘Our love is no different from yours’
I’m a man. A man who is supposed to live up to his family’s expectations. But instead, I fell in love with another man.
That’s right. I’m gay.
In a conservative society like mine, I can only keep this a secret. Feeling the pressure on all sides, the fear and resistance in other people is only too familiar to me. I’m afraid of their piercing voices, afraid of their identical stares. I have no way out, so in the end I followed the crowd and married a girl. So now I’ve lied to her, and I’ve let him down
