Romance of the Western Chamber

directed by Shela Xoregos

A musical adaptation of the fabled Chinese classic, "Xi Xiang Ji." Two young lovers fly in the face of tradition and parental disapproval in 9th century China. Previously produced in China for the very first time in English in 2011, and known as China's most popular love story, Romance of the Western Chamber tells of a young couple from different classes consummating their love despite parental disapproval and unpromising circumstances. Think Romeo and Juliet as a poor student/rich girl romance, aided by a clever, scheming maid who helps them overcome daunting obstacles: an imperious mother, a prior betrothal and an attempted abduction by a cruel bandit. All played out against the exotic background of the surprisingly liberal 9th century Tang dynasty, with a haunting, evocative score combining Eastern and Western musical influences.
