Day 10 ~ China Study Trip (half way!)

Today my daughter is off to the Red Theatre, Beijing, tonight..
(12 noon, British summer time)


To watch a performance of
The Legend of Kung Fu


The legend of Kung Fu follows the story of a young boy found wandering outside an ancient temple. Like every boy in China, he dreams of becoming a Kung Fu master. On the road to enlightenment the young monk encounters many difficulties and temptations.

The show has English subtitles shown above the stage to keep everyone informed of the story line. The actors do not speak, the show is all Kung Fu, dance and acrobatics. It is the fusion of modern dance with Chinese traditional arts which make this performance unique and spectacular.
The best Kung Fu practitioners from all over China have been found for this production. Their average age is just 17 years old! The Legend of Kung Fu is produced by China's leading perfomance art production company, China Heaven Creation International Performing Arts.

The ceiling of the theatre lights up like the night sky with twinkling stars.... sounds FAB!

HAVE A GREAT TIME MY DARLING!

HOPE YOU HAVE A LOVELY FREE AFTERNOON BEFORE YOU GO ...... I MIGHT HERE FROM YOU!!
XXXXX

Edited to say.... found an image of the starry ceiling! WOW!

  11. Ooh it sounds fantastic :-) Had to chuckle when you mentioned the English subtitles; my friend and I went to see a Kabuki Theatre production in Manchester some years ago. When we went in we were offered taped recordings of the show, which we declined as we assumed they were for tourists - NO! the whole show was in Japanese, of course, what else would you expect! but we did think there would be screens at the sides with subtitles hehehe
