San Diego Union-Tribune Review

Thanks James Hebert for your article called “Review: A rich and rewarding Zhao”:
“While there’s a sense of pensive reserve to Wong’s performance, there’s also a musical quality to his voice, a kind of quaver. That seems to dovetail with the actual music in the production, composed and directed by Byron Au Yong; it’s a haunting mix of strings, gongs, percussion and even tones summoned from bowls of water.
There are vocals, too: Wong sings in a wistful falsetto over strains of violin in one musical sequence near the end.”
