Title: Madame White Snake

Synopsis:
Adapted from the classic Chinese story of “Legend of the White Snake” 《白蛇傳》from the Ming Dynasty, this new two-act musical is created by Jackie Huang set in the Southern Song Dynasty of China. The story tells of a young scholar Xu Xian (許仙), who falls in love with a beautiful woman Bai Suzhen (白素貞), unaware that she is a white snake who has taken on human form. Although the two are genuinely in love with one another, such a relationship is forbidden by the laws of Heaven, so a monk Fa Hai (法海) intervenes in order to save the scholar’s soul and destroy the demon. Another important character is a green snake Xiao Qing (小青), who has also been turned into a woman and serves as the white snake-woman’s maid and confidante.
