Kun/Shadow Whitesnake (Premiere 2001)

The legendary adventures of Whitesnake, a mythic snake spirit gifted with magical healing powers, an enterprising businesswoman, a romantic lover, wife, mother, and a fierce, implacable warrior, are re-envisioned through a rich blend of classic Kun Opera, shadow puppetry and live music.

Kun/Shadow Whitesnake debuted in 2001 and has since been performed at venues including Pace University (NYC), HERE Center for the Performance Arts (NYC), and University of Maryland (MD).
