White Snake

Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre

 

Once upon a time, a young man fell in love with a beautiful woman. They married and lived happily until her true identity was revealed; she was a magical white snake.

The famous myth has captured imaginations for centuries. This telling turns the classic, ‘love-knows-no-bounds’ tale into a sumptuous visual experience of performance, music, art, song and costume.

The deft hand of Italian dramatist Giacomo Ravicchio places some of Shanghai’s best performers against a backdrop of projected live illustration and traditional imagery. This, along with a blend of Chinese and western music by composer Jeremy Bauer, punctuates and accents the Mandarin narration.

Staged with English subtitles, this is a wonderful introduction to Chinese theatre for all the family.
