Performed by Huajin Dance Drama Ensemble of Shanxi Academy of Arts, this high-energy production is an exquisite visual feast brought to life by the award-winning creative team behind the 2008 Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony.
Set in northern China in the tumultuous early years of the 20th century, Opera Warriors follows the fates of three exceptionally gifted Peking Opera performers who study under the same martial arts master. After completing their rigorous training, the three artists join a theatrical troupe and seem destined for success, but love and jealousy intervene.
Overflowing with emotion and melodrama, the large-scale spectacle features a company of 40 masterful dancers, elaborate sets, sumptuous costumes, and breathtaking choreography with an original orchestral score composed by Fang Ming.
Opera Warriors is a culturally rich and rare experience of the highest caliber. Don’t miss the dramatic intensity and outstanding beauty of Chinese dance theatre!
“[Opera Warriors’] performances are best
measured in megawatts.”
