Twelve animals from earth compete in a battle of speed and wit to cross the heavenly gate—the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. As a reward for turning up, the heavenly Emperor promises to name a year in the zodiac after each animal, while the race will determine the order in which they would be placed in the lunar calendar.
A fierce competition between the twelve animals ensues, triggering a series of celestial events which rock the universe across time and space.
A sonic extravaganza, the emotionally and musically charged production combines the best talents from two award winning companies, Ding Yi Music Company and The Finger Players.
Performed in English without surtitles.
