Dreadful. The stage design is ingenious and clever, but an enjoyable evening of theatre consists of more then just looking great sets. The play, written and performed by Robert Lapage and Marie Michaud, almost entirely consists of banal small-talk...continued

Just terrific! Even though it's clearly a work in progress... it's on track to become a stellar piece of performance.

It was simply a privilege to attend this performance. Lepage's lush, imaginative visual environments combine with Godot like subtlety of story and character to create something that transcends the concept of a "play."

Description

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.
