About the Show

Chinese folklore comes to life in a world premiere production featuring live music and shadow puppetry!

Phoenix and Dragon become unlikely friends while creating a beautiful pearl from an ordinary pebble.

When the pearl is stolen by the Spirit Queen of the West, Phoenix and Dragon go on a perilous journey to get it back.

Will their unusual friendship survive the ordeal?

Find out in this dynamic performance that includes colorful shadows, masks, and an original musical score for flute, cello, and percussion—performed live and in full view of the audience!

All ages welcome, recommended 5+

As of January 2023, masks are strongly encouraged for audience members ages 2 and up.
