A new China that elates the world!


The awesome life of Xiang Yu in all its beauty.
One man playing 13 roles?! Be amazed!

The tale of Xiang Yu, always well loved by enthusiasts of history, recreated in modern Chinese theatre. Opening with the ancient Chinese instrument Guqin, the play is full of Chinese atmosphere. In combination with a modern stage and artistic design it leaves the spectator with an impression of liveliness. The Chinese national theatre’s fabulous actors take centre stage: around Xiang Yu, they are each playing 13 roles and give way to a variegated world. Those who have not had enough of historic television series, as well as those not further interested into history at all, will not be able to take their eyes of the stage after a first look!

What is the BeSeTo Theatre Festival?
The first two letters of Beijing, Seoul, and Tokyo have created the name of this theatre festival in cooperation with China, Korea and Japan. This year it is held for the 17th time in Tokyo, Tottori, and Shizuoka. 40 performances by ten companies, each in Japanese, Chinese and Korean versions, are on the programme.
