This opera was created by Maestro Mei Lan-fang, with a dance called An Exploration of the Sea and some of the most enchanting Mei-styled songs which lead the audience onto a fantastic journey of the wild sea. The role of Lian Jin-Feng is played by Kung Yueh-Tzu, one of the most promising young dan role performers in Taiwan, and co-performed by Yu Chi-Jou, a talented wu-dan role performer, in the scene called Pricking the Clam.

Now is a critical time for news leaders to understand how they build decision making processes and workflows that consider climate into all of their operations.
