Additional Notes:
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.
