The Autumn of Han
A new adaptation of a Chinese classic for the European stage, an enthralling story of corruption, revenge and tragic love.
MaoYanShou, a minister of the Han court, is selecting new concubines for the Emperor’s harem, but when the beautiful ZhaoJun refuses to supply him with his usual bribe he makes sure she’s hidden away in a forgotten wing of the palace.
ZhaoJun is a resourceful woman and soon engineers a meeting with the Emperor who, on seeing her, immediately falls in love and in doing so sets off a chain of events that changes all their lives.
