Lady White Snake
Lady White Snake: A Tale from Chinese Opera retold by Aaron Shepard

What fate awaits a thousand-year-old white snake that travels from its sacred mountain to the human world, only to fall in love with a mortal?  Such is the unusual beginning of this tragic love story, one of the most popular in all of Chinese opera.  Lady White’s selfless devotion to her earthly husband is considered by the temple priest an abomination.  In a spectacular struggle to stay with her husband, our heroine prevails in the end.  However, time is sadly not on her side.  Text in English and Traditional Chinese.  – (Pan Asian Pubns)
