Once began as a music-fueled indie film that won the nation's heart in 2006, taking home the Best Original Song Oscar for its haunting love ballad "Falling Slowly." Now, Once has taken the Broadway stage by storm, earning eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The romantic tale follows a downtrodden Dublin street musician and a delightfully quirky Czech woman who meet in the least likely of places -- a vacuum cleaner repair shop. Their complicated lives make the path to love a rocky one, and they channel their feelings into the music they produce together -- him on guitar, her on piano, two voices harmonizing and setting them free, for a time, from the harsh realities of their lives.

Robert Lepage creates emotionally vivid and visually enthralling works that ponder the mystery and wonder of life. Bearing all the hallmarks of Lepage’s brilliant and intensely original style, The Blue Dragon follows the lives of three characters in modern China, including the ambitious young artist Pierre Lamontagne, a character first introduced in Lepage’s 1985 masterpiece The Dragons’ Trilogy. The resulting intersection of their lives and the underlying collision of Eastern and Western, modern and ancient, and establishment and subversive values brings about fundamental changes for each.
