"Teacher Moon" Xu Shiyun, who taught dancing to contestants of Super Girls and Happy Boys, will debut with her first musical, Rose Lake (罗丝湖), at Mei Lanfang Grand Theater in Beijing on April 1. At only 22, Xu takes the role of both director and leading actress, and she is also responsible for the script, choreography, and stage design.
In the musical, Rose Lake is the boundary in a forest that divides two tribes, elves and wolves, who have resented each other for a long time. The two leading characters, the princess of elves and the prince of wolves fall in love.
Xu previously performed in Jacky Cheung's musical Snow Wolf Lake, and according to Xinmin.cn, that experience inspired Xu to produce Rose Lake, a musical in which she hopes the younger generation will also enjoy.
