A musical retelling of the Chinese classic by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. Equal parts epic musical theater and stunning animation, this production includes a cast of Chinese acrobats, singers, contortionists, martial artists, and animated displays. This event tells the story of a monk, who journeys from China to India to find the Buddha and receive the scriptures' enduring impossible challenges. The Monkey King leads the monk and his protectors, creating havoc along the way. Performed in Mandarin with English subtitles.
