Fuente Ovejuna - The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts


Fuente Ovejuna is the first drama directed by famous director and Academy graduate Roy Szeto on his joining the Academy as the Senior Lecturer (Directing) of the School of Drama. Having worked with local production companies for many years, Szeto has directed a number of well-received works and was awarded Best Director twice for Le Dieu du Carnage in 2011 and Shed Skin in 2012.

Lope de Vega (1562-1635) wrote during Spain's Golden Age and is often called "Spain's Shakespeare." Fuente Ovejuna, his best-known work, is based on real events which took place in the late 15th Century, when the townspeople of Fuente Ovejuna banded together in solidarity to overthrow a cruel overlord. The Chinese version of Fuente Orejuna performed by the School is translated and adapted by a local lyricist, Chris Shum. The play's title and its ensemble-like nature suggest that the communal spirit of the town is its true protagonist. Lope's play resonates with many contemporary political situations not least in China ¡V such as recent events in the village of Wukan in Guangdong Province ¡V proving that Lope's play is as relevant to today as it was when it was written.
