The musical Kunlun Myth is a wonderful display of both ancient and modern concepts through an alternate expression of heaven and earth. The story of a mythical place in the Kunlun Mountains and the real world of fantasy deliver’s a legendary love story.
The love story: Deng Fei is a college student from Beijing, who visits Kunlun Mountain for its reputation. Coincidently, he comes across Meiduo, the daughter of the Heaven Pillar tribe’s chief. They fall in love at the first sight. Deng Fei discovers the relic of the Heaven Pillar and recognizes the mysterious characters on it. He reads out those characters and ascends to the heaven by accident. Queen Mother and other gods attempt to have Gonggong rebuild the Heaven Pillar knocked down by him and redeem his crime. Unexpectedly, Deng Fei enters into the palace of the heaven and finally understands it is beneficial for the mankind to rebuild the Heaven Pillar. He returns to the earth with good will.
Kunlun Myth made its premier in 2012 as the first Chinese original musical, performed by the Musical China Theatre Troupe. Kunlun Myth has presented more than 100 performances, as well as producing a tour version and an international version, all of which invites diverse music styles with magnificent scenic design. The performances are beautifully outstanding, telling a moving love story about forgiveness and tolerance.
