Green Snake star, Yuan Quan | Vogue China

Yuan Quan

Most Chinese are familiar with the Song dynasty classic The Legend of the White Snake, a romantic tale about a young man named Xu Xian and a snake spirit-turned-human called Bai Suzhen but less well known is Green Snake, which is an edgy, and more contemporary version of the story, written by   Lillian Lee Pik-wah.

But it’s this version – filled with hatred, jealousy and lust – that has captured the imagination of Beijing director Tian Qinxin, who has brought this to the stage staring Yuan Quan and Qin Hailu. Green Snake is a collaboration between the National Theatre of China and the National Theatre of Scotland.
