Celebrated for creating diverse, timely and relevant opera, activist opera company White Snake Projects (WSP) and its founder Cerise Lim Jacobs today announced the upcoming world premiere of MONKEY: A Kung Fu Puppet Parable on the Robert J. Orchard Stage at Boston’s Emerson Paramount Center. There will be three performances from Friday, September 22, to Sunday, September 24. Set to a libretto by Jacobs with a score by composer Jorge Sosa, this family-friendly transmedia show combines unique, life-scaled Bunraku puppetry, Kung Fu, computer generated images, and live opera. Based on the epic Chinese fable “Monkey King: Journey to the West,” MONKEY is rewritten to reflect contemporary issues from the multicultural mosaic of American life. With a cast carefully chosen to reflect the diversity of the charactersthe movement-based ensemble of experienced puppeteers, physical theater performers, and Kung Fu practitioners animates the story’s three main characters – Monkey, Pig (Zhu), and Sandwoman (Shu) - alongside opera singers and members of Voices Boston.
