Monkey: Journey to the West is an adaptation of a 400-year-old classic of Chinese literature. In Monkey, a cast of more than 60 Chinese opera performers, gravity-defying acrobats and martial arts performers animate the fabled peregrinations of the Monkey King in a mix of adventure, mystery and magic.

Damon Albarn, former front man of the British pop band Blur and co-creator of the virtual band Gorillaz composed the music. Jamie Hewlett, Albarnís co-creator from Gorillaz, is responsible for the visual concept of the show which includes animation and literally hundreds of costumes. Monkey: Journey to the West is directed by the Chinese Chen Shi Zheng.
