Mulan, the Legend
At the end of the training the recruits are
sent off to fight the Hun and the action begins. This section features
all of the men in the troupe and is one of the most fast and furious
pats in the show. Effects are used to portray the falling snow, this
includes large while flags that the performers tumble and jump over as
they are swung around.
Of course good wins over evil and the end of
the war is celebrated in a typical Chinese way with acrobatic lions and
jugglers outside the royal palace.
But before the celebration ends, the Hun
himself attacks the palace, using long red curtains to swing across the
stage and over the audience.
The Hun is defeated and the celebrations
continue in a blaze of color and movement.
As the show ends the cast take their final
bow as the red curtain falls
Leaving Mushu the playful Dragon in front of
Mulan is a fantastic show, packed with
breathtaking and stunning performances. I defy anyone who sees this show
not to be moved by the skill, expertise and commitment displayed by it's
