MULAN , a legendary heroine musical adapted from a Chinese Poem “The Ballad of Mulan.” directed by Luigi Nacario and music by Eugene Belbis.
The story of Mulan, a popular Chinese heroine, comes from an old Chinese folktale entitled “The Ballad of Mulan”. Originally a poem – Hua Mulan’s story has been adapted into a number of different versions over the years.
This year, Kids Acts Philippines will stage its own take on the ballad as the season offering to all schools. Fearless and determined, Mulan’s story starts out as China is facing the threat of the Huns. The Emperor seeks out the help of the men of different families to fight in battle. Former military man and Mulan’s father is among those chosen. Too old and sick to participate but also too honourable to walk away from the duty, Mulan’s father and his family are faced with the dilemma of being unable to send someone in his place. Without a male member who is old enough to fight, Mulan steps forward to serve in the army in his place.
This version of Mulan’s tale, unlike the other popular versions, shows the perspective of her siblings. It also shows that her parents have given her their blessings to do what she must. Mulan will then take appropriate measures to prepare for battle. The story unfolds around her buying the necessary equipment she will need before setting out. It also exhibits the different seasons she goes through during the course of the war. When Mulan comes home, she amazes everyone with the fact that she is indeed a woman.
A story of family, sacrifice and courage rooted in the rich culture and tradition of China – the production of Mulan is certainly a treat that all families will enjoy.
