HSMC was invited to the drama performance: “The Soongs: By Dreams Betrayed”
HSMC was invited by Nanjing (H.K.) Association Limited to the drama performance: “The Soongs: By Dreams Betrayed.” Professor Gilbert Fong, the Acting President and Provost, along with among 100 members of the Drama Society of HSMC, students and staff, attended the play.
The play portrays the stories of the three Soong daughters – Ai-ling, Ching-ling and May-ling, who were married to three of the most important men in China of their time – H. H. Kung, Sun Yat-sen and Chiang Kai-shek. From the tumultuous era of the early 1900s to the middle of the century, each sister’s fate was a legend in its own right. Their unmatched glamour and allure captivated the public’s imagination. The drama gives our students a new and interesting view to look into the modern Chinese history. The College appreciates the generosity of Nanjing (H.K.) Association Limited of their offering of the free tickets to our participants and thanks for their support in promoting the holistic development of our students.
Members of the Drama Society enjoyed the play and said that it was a valuable opportunity to watch such an excellent performance by professional actors. They looked forward to more collaboration with external parties and promoting drama performances in the future.
