THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Suitable for ages 6+ & families Running Time: 90 mins approx including interval An original new show in which a troupe of Western performers and musicians combine their skills with masters of the Sichuan Opera. With an amazing array of costumes, acrobatic routines, evocative song and exotic percussion, you’ll encounter wise old men, fiery women, greedy emperors, and fairytale lovers who turn into butterflies. And somewhere amidst this Chinese-inspired adventure will be the man who can change face - a highlight of traditional Sichuan Opera and a closely guarded secret - it really does have to be seen to be believed! Supported by the Cultural Olympiad’s Igniting Ambition scheme, this production promises to introduce audiences to one of the world’s great theatrical techniques! SCARY BITS WARNING As with all stories where good and evil battle it out, there will be some scary bits along the way!
