ADCOA staging a 4-act Cantonese Opera – The White Snake Legend
Lady White is a thousand-year–old snake who, through centuries of meditation and self-discipline, has managed to attain human form. On a visit to China’s famous West Lake, she falls in love with a young man and soon becomes his wife. But when a Buddhist abbot discovers her true origin, she must fight for both her marriage and her freedom.
