 A New Cantonese Opera A Dream in Fantasia


Childhood friends Yuwen Piaopiao and Xiahou Jun are betrothed to each other, but Piaopiao's father wants her to marry Linghu Feng. She would rather die than obey, and is going to elope with Jun. She lets her bosom friend Murong Xiangxiang in on this, but Xiangxiang is in love with Feng. So, in order to please him, she tells him their secret, which sends him hurtle turtle to go and find them.

Crown Prince Gongyang and his Princess consort are on their way to attend the Queen of Xuanyuan's birthday celebrations. He is displeased to see the Princess spending most of her time in the company of Yuetong, leaving him frustratingly alone. The forest fairy of Fantasia Land suggests to the Prince that he should play a trick on the Princess with a flower potion: one small drop on the eyelids will make the person fall in love with the first thing that comes into sight upon waking. Now the Prince has seen how Feng jilts Xiangxiang in the woods. Urged by a sense of justice, he orders the forest fairy to play a trick on him as well. However, the fairy wrongly administers the potion on Jun, who, upon waking up and seeing Xiangxiang, professes his love for her. Later Feng is also administered the potion. So when Piaopiao arrives, there is chaos in the air as the four of them fight and quarrel.

Shangguan Chan is leading the villagers to go and perform for the Queen on her birthday. They have also come to Fantasia Land. The forest fairy plays a trick on them and puts a donkey's head on Zhuge Zi's body. When the Princess wakes up and sees him, she falls madly in love with him, which the Prince witnesses with great merriment.

When dawn comes, the Prince orders all spells be broken. When everyone wakes up, they wonder what happened was whether in a dream or real. But anyway, it's over, and they can laugh it off. Together they go their merry way to celebrate the Queen's birthday.
