Legend of the Sun was very impressive, not only in the sheer number of dancers on stage, but also because of their talent. The leads were all fantastic (Le, his mother, Teng), but the entire show was amazing.

The music for the show is...continued

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
