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.
In Putonghua. Lyrics and dialogues with
Chinese and English surtitles.
