Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Shanghai Mimi Band
Ring in the Chinese New Year with an evening of musical fireworks inspired by the magic of 1930s Shanghai.
Fall in love with the extraordinary Shanghai Mimi, your songstress with the mostess performed by the beguiling Sophie Koh. Directed by John McAll, Shanghai Mimi and her band bring the swinging jazz clubs of old Shanghai back to dazzling life. They perform music redolent of the shidaiqu style, a fusion of Chinese folk and American jazz that embraced Shanghai’s melting pot of local and international talent. A feast for the ears and the eyes, from the city dubbed the Paris of the East, the night promises to welcome in the Year of the Ox with a bang.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. When we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
