Harbin-re was a planet located in the Harbin-re system of the Inner Rim. It was famous for productions of operas from the Neoclassical period, including several compositions favored by the Galactic Emperor Palpatine. On the date 35:10:16, the Harbin-re opera was mentioned in an Imperial HoloVision news report.
Behind the scenes
Harbin-re was first mentioned in the "Galaxywide NewsNets" feature of the West End Games' Star Wars Adventure Journal 5, which was published in February 1995. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Harbin-re system, and therefore the planet itself, in grid square N-13.
