A beautiful and enchanting tale of a young orphaned girl, a magical fish, a nasty stepmother and sister and… a lost shoe. Will Yeh Shen be able to attend the New Year Festival? How can a fish, a dragon and a horse help her? Will she ever find happiness? And what happens to the shoe?
The story of Yeh Shen first appeared in 9th Century China, over 1,000 years before the first European Cinderella story. Now the company behind the exuberant and highly popular Why The Lion Danced brings a new version of this timeless tale to life with puppetry, live music, elements of Beijing Opera and all the excitement, colour and sounds of the Chinese Spring Festival.
‘This is active storytelling at its best; just enough to tell the tale without
taking away from the audience’s imagination. It’s hilarious, challenging, and an awful lot of fun!’ ★★★★★ What’s On on Why the Lion Danced.
