English Monkey King

English Monkey King is an opera that has been adapted to include the character of the Monkey King, and special editions have been performed in English. Sun Wukong, also known as the Monkey King is a mythical feature who features in stories and legends. These have been traced as far back as the Song Dynasty. He is nicknamed the Money King as in later stories and even later adaptations, he is a monkey born from a stone who acquires powers through Taoist practices. This is the story displayed in the English Monkey King [who always wears one specific mask as he is such an important part of legends.]
