Mila is an original chamber opera that explores the plight of Hong Kong’s domestic foreign workers through the tensions and relationships within a Hong Kong family—an American husband, his Cantonese wife, their son, and their domestic helper Mila from the Philippines. This 70-minute opera features composer Eli Marshall, playwright and librettist Candace Chong, director Chu Hei Chan, conductor Neal Goren, and a cast of performers from Hong Kong, Manila, and the United States.
