Great singing, Great orchestra, Concert version, Great music & lyrics

See it if Great concert. Strong voices, gorgeous music. Great blend of western and Chinese music.

Don't see it if you want a full show. Since the concert values were so good, I really wanted at least a narrator to fill in the story line. Read more

Good music & singing, Talented cast & musicians, Poor writing, Bland & predictable story

See it if you're primarily interested in the music, which is by far the best part of the show.

Don't see it if you care about the story or song lyrics, which are broad brush strokes & give no insights into the 1 human character in the whole piece. Read more
