Experience the legend of Mulan, the young lady who volunteered to take her father’s place in China’s war against invaders. Based on the Ballad of Mulan, which was first transcribed in the 6th century, the story has been popular not only in China, but worldwide. Bristol Ballet’s “Mulan, the Legend” is set to the score “Mulan – Ballet in Three Acts” by Joshua Chan, who composed it especially for the Hong Kong Ballet. Artistic Director Michele Plescia was fortunate to acquire the score directly from Mr. Chan, as it is not for sale commercially . The beautiful, melodic music is a treasure for Bristol Ballet to have and to use. From Mulan’s decision to go to war for her father, her time practicing to fight the invaders, the battles, to her victorious return home, this ballet will be inspirational to all. As a student concert involving ages 4 and up, there will be many memorable moments to see!
