A Chinese legend/story told through very creative dance moves. The songs with words are in Chinese so you must read the captions to get the story as it progresses. A nice bit of culture.

Wonderful epic tale, great production and excellent dancers. Truly outstanding! Music and dance are universal languages... And they also provide you with subtitles describing what's happening in the story.
I would watch it again
