Singapore Repertory Theatre and Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, invites you to join us for the restaging of the most successful original musical ever to be produced in Singapore – Forbidden City: Portrait of an Empress. Following three sold-out runs and over 100,000 tickets sold, this epic musical promises to be the cultural event of the year.

The musical stars Kit Chan as the Empress Dowager Cixi, with Cheryl Tan as the young imperial concubine, Yehenara, and features music by Cultural Medallion winner, Dick Lee. The cast will also include Broadway and West End star Earl Carpenter (Les Misérables) and Broadway star Stephanie Leigh (Mary Poppins) as well as Singapore’s very own Sebastian Tan (Broadway Beng).

What really happened in the Forbidden City over a century ago? Who was the real Dowager Empress? The Dragon Lady of myth? Or a misunderstood victim of circumstance?
