¿Por qué le llaman ópera, cuando quieren decir...

Manchester International Festival launches with a dazzling circus opera spectacular, breathing life into an ancient Chinese legend through music, stunning stage sets, dance, acrobatics and martial arts.
Monkey: Journey to the West is a groundbreaking new production in Mandarin, set to a musical score by Damon Albarn and visual concept, set design and costume by Jamie Hewlett – the artists behind the award winning virtual band Gorillaz.
Written and adapted by Chen Shi-Zheng, whose credits range from classical Chinese opera to the upcoming Meryl Streep Hollywood movie, Dark Matter, this magical extravaganza features 45 Chinese circus acrobats, Shaolin monks and Chinese vocalists.
It promises to be a truly spectacular opener for the Manchester International Festival.
Monkey: Journey to the West has been designed and created by the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris in co-production with the Manchester International Festival and State Opera House, Berlin (Staatsoper Unter den Linden).

Damon Albarn y ópera china. Algo no funciona.
