Witness the extraordinary tale of the Monkey King. Book and lyrics by Marty Chan (with lyrics, music and orchestration by Robert Walsh), The Forbidden Phoenix blends Peking opera, Western musical theatre, comedy, acrobatics and martial arts into a single play. Immigration is central to the show – the story of a father who comes to Canada looking for a better life. The Monkey King, Chinese mythology’s most beloved super hero, must rescue a damsel in distress and tame the Iron Dragon before he can be reunited with his son.
