The Forbidden Phoenix
2011 Opening Night: Friday, April 8 at the Gateway theatre, Richmond BC
The show features a cast of sixteen, and a ten piece orchestra playing both Western and Chinese instruments. This fable begins, as fables do, with a hero. Ours is an unlikely one, a trickster named Sun Wukong (the Monkey King) who leaves his home in China for the West in hopes of finding a better life for his son. There he encounters a greedy man who wants to destroy Gold Mountain, the final bastion of nature, by digging through it to build a railway line. Betrayed by this villain and condemned to a lifetime of separation from his son he finally finds a way home, only to discover that his boy has been turned against him. He must win back his son’s love even if it costs him his life.
