In 2017, Super Typhoon Hato struck Macao, causing extensive floods, power and water outages, and network disruptions, and left the city devastated with streets blocked by fallen trees and full of garbage. In the face of adversity, all walks of life in the city united their strength to overcome the numerous difficulties and help each: public security forces and residents worked together to save lives; medical staff devoted themselves to rescuing the wounded and helping those in distress; and volunteers from various sectors lent their support, helping to accelerate the resumption of social order. With approval from the Central People's Government, the Macao Garrison of the Chinese People's Liberation Army also participated in the post-typhoon clean-up and relief operations, re-injecting vitality into the city through their joint efforts with the general public.
Multimedia Full-length Cantonese Opera Bonds of Hato is based on real events that occurred throughout the storm and during post-typhoon relief work. Combining the quintessence of traditional Cantonese opera and multimedia technology in modern theatre as well as taking an ingenious artistic approach, this performance celebrates the noble sentiments of Macao people who love the city and the country alike with selfless dedication.
