The Tragedy of Coriolanus

Beijing People’s Art Theatre-European Premiere

Performed in Mandarin with English supertitles

Brilliant General Caius Martius returns to Rome a hero. Having conquered the city of Corioles he is named Coriolanus and persuaded to run for Consul. However, when he is rejected by the ‘common people’ Coriolanus vows to destroy Rome and joins forces with his enemy Aufidius to mount an attack. With live music by two of China’s leading heavy metal bands – Miserable Faith and Suffocated – innovative Chinese director Lin Zhaohua re-interprets Shakespeare’s tragedy for the 21st century. Pu Cunxin, one of China’s most famous actors, brings the rebel General vividly to life.
