The Chinese version of Cinderella with a new classical twist of music and movement.

Cinderella, one of the most known European fairy tales, is believed to have been first transcribed in the 17th century by Italian writer Giambattista Basile, but in fact it is a version of a much older story found throughout history in various cultures around the world. One such predecessor is the Tang Dynasty story of Ye Xian (叶限 or 葉限), documented in the early 9th century. While the original Chinese tale follows an arc many of us might recognise, Untold reveals a few new twists, integrating contemporary classical music, movement, and Chinese and western instruments into an immersive experience that blends genres, art-forms, and cultures.

In the context of All Arias Musictheatre Festival.
