" At Aranya Temple " - In the flickering light, secret whispers linger in the summer night.
Featuring: Xian Yangling, Liu Jianhua
One man - a gentle and bookish scholar, Ning Caichen; One woman – the charming and lovely spirit, Nie Xiaoqian; And one more – the professional swordsman who slays evil spirits, Yan Chixia.
In the eerie and haunted Aranya Temple, their fates will intertwine. In the ghostly fog, human desire springs forth; no one can escape the light which reveals their true heart. Is it love that he feels for her, or pity? Is it veneration he feels for him, or desire? The Taiwan Bangzi Opera Company proudly presents: “At Aranya Temple”, a brand new opera about young affection, restless desire, and the eternal pursuit of love.
The classic film “A Chinese Ghost Story” immortalized this sad yet beautiful romance between man and ghost. Have you ever wondered what Ning Caichen, Nie Xiaoqian, and Yan Chixia might look like on the operatic stage? Then don’t miss the latest production from the Taiwan Bangzi Opera Company at the 2016 Kaohsiung Arts Festival, where the living and the dead mingle in an enchanting, captivating, and enticing love story.
Ning Caichen is not an idiot, he just has a very poor sense of direction. Luckily, he can always count on the charming and lovely Lady Xiaoqian or valiant and chivalrous Brother Chixia to guide him on his way. But can they safely see him through the mountains’ treacherous paths and labyrinthine ways?
Nie Xiaoqian is quite convinced that Ning Caichen is a complete fool. She had taken great pains to find a safe road for him to travel. God only knows how he managed to stray into the Aranya Temple! She adores him and does not want to see him perish in this desolate spot. Beset by the evil demon Lao Lao, how can she protect this innocent love of hers?
Yan Chixia has devoted his life to slaying evil spirits. Once, he believed he was free from human lust and want. But as the mists gather in the ghostly temple, he finds himself powerless against his heart’s long-suppressed desires.
Inside Aranya Temple, this is the moment of life and death…all I want is your love.
