I attended the ballet last night of the Laoning's "The Last Emporer" which was based on the story of Puyi.
The ballet was wonderful. Below is the promotional video.
I was disappointed that there were so many empty seats in the theatre.
I met up with two single older men (don't worry, I wasn't 'looking' and clearly neither were they. One of them told me he attends performances at the QPAC 3 to 5 times a week. Oh, to be so lucky. Even consession tickets are expensive!
I was glad to escape the cold of Brisbane - 10 degrees below normal and it felt it. I wore for the first time, the coat that the students had made for me in China - complete with the dog fur fringe on the hood!!
I was still so cold that I had to have the coat over my knees in the theatre.

Puyi wrote his autobiography. You can get it at Amazon.
