The Great Wall: One Woman's Journey is a spectacular musical adaptation that transforms Meng Jiang Nü's tale into a soaring musical odyssey. Raw emotions are laid bare in a dazzling display of vocal showmanship as the characters come to life in a beautiful contemporary setting detailed with traditional design influences.

Captivating and profoundly moving, this production weaves a gripping tale of love and courage against an epic backdrop of imperial China. In the face of insurmountable odds, a young everywoman does not yield to her fate. What unfolds is a passionate display of a woman's resolve as she stands alone against the ultimate symbol of unbridled hubris and power.

I am Meng Jiang Nü - This is my story.
Through fierce tears I love.
I stand in front of an Emperor.
Witness my resolve.
