Introduction of Legend of White Snake:

With innovative stage design, top of the line lighting and video equipment as well as fresh, modern choreography of acrobats and martial arts, this classic Peking Opera gets a make-over. The plot is essentially an adaptation of the Song dynasty folktale from Chinese mythology "Madame White Snake." It has since become a major subject of several Chinese opera, films and TV series. today, the Legend of the White Snake show is showing at the Minorities Cultural Palace theater Beijing in every night.

Legend of the White Snake is a famous Chinese legend, which existed as oral traditions before any written compilation. At its most basic, the story tells of a young scholar who falls in love with a beautiful woman, unaware that she is a white snake who has taken on human form. A monk intervenes in order to save the scholar's soul and casts the white snake into a deep well at the Leifeng Pagoda.

 
Legend of White Snake

Over the centuries the story has evolved from horror story to romance with the scholar and the white snake-woman genuinely in love with one another, but such a relationship is forbidden by the laws of Heaven. There have also been variations on the telling of the story: like the scholar adopting the white snake as a pet while still a schoolboy; or himself being banished from Heaven and becoming a mere human on Earth.

 

An added character is a green snake who has also been turned into a woman and serves as the white snake-woman's soul sister and confidante.
