Serendipity Tales, a groundbreaking Chinese theatrical production, captivated audiences in Beijing during its debut on May 1 and 2.

Supported by the Beijing Culture and Arts Fund, the production, helmed by director Xiong Mengchu, weaves together real performers and puppets to narrate enchanting stories tailored for adult viewers, including beloved classics like The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, and Little Red-Cap (Little Red Riding Hood).

Transporting spectators into a realm of fantasy, the performers skillfully blended physical movements with the interplay of lights, shadows, and multimedia technology. The Theater of Jiangsu Province's actors and actresses enriched the performances, a collaborative effort between Zheteng (Beijing) Cultural Communication and Jiangsu Performing Arts Group, promising a mesmerizing experience that seamlessly merges tradition and innovation on stage.
