Love endures. In this world - or any other.
Supernatural tales are taken as one of the major genres of classical Chinese literature, and the futile love between humans and ghosts is a recurrent theme. It is generally agree that the finest of them did not come before "Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio", written by Pu Songling almost three hundred years ago. One of the stories, "Nie Xiaoqian", has touched so many hearts over the centuries that it is repeatedly adapted for literature, cinema, and television, making this time-honored tale a household name.
Set against an eerie world of the dead, the grand dance drama "L’Amour Immortel" reinterprets this classic tale from a contemporary perspective. Nie Xiaoqian, a beautiful, bewitching ghost, is coerced by the devil of the netherworld to prey on humans; but when she meets Ning Caichen, a truthful, good-natured man, she loses her heart and is determined to save him from the evil force, even at the cost of her own afterlife.
In this performance, the lovers will traverse the shadowy, mysterious underworld, fighting for love and freedom. Gripping, thrilling, and passionate, "L’Amour Immortel" unfolds the most beautiful human values with a poignant ghost story, hymning the purest of all hearts in a tale of forbidden love. In this world as in the other world, life can be transient, but love, and the beauty of our souls, is immortal.
