Mingle Ensemble, with Marcus Fung and Herman Lau
Tales Wise and Wonderful
Through music, movement, and live storytelling, Tales Wise and Wonderful shares four Chinese folk tales with audiences. From a diva musician to seven sisters with supernatural talents, these stories explore how we find contentment - in family, in knowing where we belong, and in being at peace with ourselves.
