It is arguably one of the most famous and enduring stories told in Chinese folk-lore and is one of the most dynamic characters in world literature. Monkey King - China Show is a large-scale fantasy stage play based on the Chinese legend of the famous monk – Xuan Zang from the Tang Dynasty (602 – 664) and is better known as ‘A Journey to the West’.


The Monkey King – China Show’s Macao production is based on the original version and brings all the Chinese elements of myths, fairy tales, drama, comedy, slapstick, magic and other features in one. It is arguably one of the most famous and enduring stories told in Chinese folk-lore and is one of the most dynamic characters in world literature. Journey to the West is one of China’s four most influential works in classical literature and is also a reflection of the spirit of traditional Chinese culture. To adapt a story like this for the modern stage is no mean feat. To do so, Huayan brought in a group of experts, scholars and artists to join the creative team. 

The creative team have used these elements to create a rich and multilayered narrative time and space, that presents the audiences with traditional Chinese culture and modern vitality which at the same time provides a stage performance art with infinite possibilities.

The show is thus presented in the purpose built theatre created by Sands China Ltd. especially for Huayan Group’s Monkey King – China Show production. Guests can expect to be captivated by the giant 15 meter Buddha hand weighing 7 tons and two huge talons reaching out from the sides of the theatre. One of the spectacular scenes is where the Buddha hand armed with eight Talismans of Buddhism and carrying aurora and rainbow, strikes talons into the dust as a postlude to ‘Ode to Buddha’ based on the holy music at the end of the novel ‘Journey to the West’. This is the point when the Monkey King – China Show expresses its overall theme of changing evil into good and hatred into love.

Creative Performing Team

After eight years in the making, the Beijing Huayan Group launched a stage show in February 2017, based on this legend at the Sands Cotai Theatre in Macao. 

The hundreds of colourful costumes were designed by renowned designer Ah Kuan, who skillfully integrated cloisonné and traditional Chinese elements to bring to life the magical and sometimes dramatic costumes.

All of these elements are complemented by a team of talented artists, acrobats, ballet dancers, and martial arts masters from all around the world including stars from the National Peking Opera. The acrobats include previous cast members of the world famous Cirque du Soleil, as well as past winners of the Golden Clown Award, gold medal winners of the International Acrobatics Competition, the Circus International Competition and CCTV Dance Competitions.
