The Hidden Concubine is a mesmerising and provoking love story of a bandit from Liang Shan (Bandit's Mountain), his concubine and her lover, trapped in Black Dragon Residence. Wu Hsing-kuo, a renowned Chinese opera actor, film and TV actor, and once a dancer of the famous Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, stunningly displays a great charismatic performance playing both the bandit and the lover. His Contemporary Legend Theatre of Taiwan has proudly made a giant step (with a lot of fun) in transforming the popular Peking opera dramatic piece into a memorable night of sophisticated 'contemporarised' Chinese opera.
