She is a treasure trove of stories on how the venues were transformed for landmark productions such as Kun Opera's The Peony Pavilion, where the Theatre stage became a lavish outdoor pavilion with a pond. Let her tell you what it takes to put a programme together including managing artists’ varied needs and more.
