Programme Note


A fertile land, in a remote mountainous country between China and Tibet, is ruled by a wise old king and upset by the imposition of a young, foolish and greedy king. The latter is a wicked tyrant who has displaced the real heirs to the throne and is capable of transforming into a spider and monkey at will. Fortunately, the cook manages to catch the tyrant while he is a spider, lock him up in a box and restore the true heir.
