L’Orphelin 2.0 is based on The Orphan of Zhao, one of China’s oldest plays and the first to be translated into a European language. Described as the Chinese Hamlet, it is a luminous reinvention of an ancient legend. As with any classic, several versions exist. It first appeared in Zuo Zhuan, the well-known Commentary of Zuo on The Spring and Autumn Annals and then described by the great historian Sima Qian in his Records of the Grand Historian. But is there a ‘true’ version? 415-399-9554
