OverlordOct. 23rd, 2017  New Space Theatre, STA


Music theatre Overlord is inspired by two traditional Chinese music masterpieces for instrument Pipa -Ambush on All Sides and King Doffs His Armor. Based on historical facts, Overlord portrays Chinese warlord Xiang Yu with music scores, exploring his inner world via different chapters. Unlike other film and traditional Chinese opera adaptations, Overlord does not focus on retelling the story but tries to walk into the overlords’ utter innocence despite ups and downs; his emotions sympathized by the human kind regardless of cultural background or time.
