In ancient China, poet and politician Qu Yuan dedicated his whole life to the King and the Chu kingdom until exile changed his world forever.
In present-day Toronto, Chinese-Canadian Xiao Lian wants her liberties and independence, while her father tries desperately to hold her close.
Past and present, the Dragon Boat’s drum beats to the rhythm of Qu Yuan and Xiao Lian’s hearts. Both are conflicted by powerful love, and both desire ultimate freedom.
Dragon’s Tale is a joyous celebration of Chinese tradition with a Canadian backdrop bursting with soaring music, song and storytelling. Created by the world-renowned team behind Tapestry Opera’s smash-hit Iron Road composer Chan Ka Nin, one of Canada’s most accomplished Chinese-Canadian composers, and award-winning playwright and librettist Mark Brownell. Directed by Tapestry Opera’s Artistic Director, Michael Hidetoshi Mori, with Musical Direction by David Fallis.
Co-produced with Soundstreams
Co-presented by Luminato Festival Toronto & Harbourfront Centre
