An Original Cantonese Comic Opera
A Tribute to the World of Kungfu




On Wu Lung (“Black Dragon”) Mountain, Master Shifu, the Leader of the Black Dragon Sect, was killed by the usurper Sect Uncle, leaving behind the master’s wife and three male disciples with mediocre kungfu skills, and a Secret Book of Kungfu that no one can find.  The Sect Uncle, himself injured, fled Wu Lung Mountain and studied the Dark Arts.  Renaming himself “Divine Lord of the Coiled Dragon”, he now returns to Wu Lung Mountain to claim sect leadership and transform it into the Coiled Dragon Cult.  The Black Dragon Sect is on the cusp of being annihilated.  The Master Chef and his three female apprentices of the Black Dragon Diner, a noodle shop at the foot of Wu Lung Mountain, also get caught in this conflict. 

A fierce battle between good and evil is about to unravel!

 

Performed in Cantonese with Chinese and English surtitles.

The performance will run for about 70 minutes without intermission.  

Audience is strongly advised to arrive punctually.  Latecomers will only be admitted at a suitable break.
