"East-meets-West tale" The Golden Dragon heading to Birmingham REP - with video
Based on the play by Roland Schimmelpfennig, The Golden Dragon is heading to Birmingham REP.
The tale follows the story of a kitchen boy after the discovery of a decayed tooth in a bowl of soup. He is a long way from home and with no papers, looking for his sister and forced into a life of exploitation.
The modern opera is equal parts funny and dark as it poignantly explores the themes of exploitation and immigration throughout it's narrative.
The Golden Dragon appears at Birmingham REP on October 3.
