3 no. saves icon · Modern, Contemporary, International Productions

After the success of The Autumn of Han Red Dragonfly returns with another exciting adaptation of a Chinese classic.

Overview

Based on the ancient Chinese legend of DiaoChan, part of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, this production has been called a Chinese Macbeth, and brings to the stage an epic story of lust, jealousy and revenge.

The Empire is in turmoil and the tyrant DongZhuo, with the great warrior LuBu at his side, is systematically putting to the sword all those who oppose him. The minister WangYun fears for the lives of his family, but when both DongZhuo and LuBu show a lustful interest in DiaoChan - a singing girl of WangYun’s household - she comes up with a plan that could solve both their problems – a plan that would see DongZhuo fall and see her rise to the ranks of the nobility.
