To save her father from death in the army, a young maiden secretly goes in his place and becomes one of China’s greatest heroines in the process! Unknown to her, her ancestors are aware of this and to prevent it, they order a tiny disgraced dragon, Mushu to join her in order to force her to abandon her plan. He agrees, but when he meets Mulan, he learns that she cannot be dissuaded and so decides to help her in the perilous times ahead…

This classic Chinese folk story was told by Walt Disney Feature Animation’s 1994 critically claimed animation “Mulan”, which grossed over $304 million and then in 2020, a live-action adaption of the story, Mulan II again captured the hearts from viewers around the world.

Now you can watch the story of this Academy Award winning “Mulan” live at Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA on June 23, 2022!

Produced and performed by a Virginia based performing arts group, Xuejuan Dance Ensemble, you will experience the vibrancy and diversity of Chinese dances through the eyes and ears of young Mulan. Blending distinctive moves with intricate costumes and traditional music, Xuejuan Dance Ensemble performances are a treat for audiences of all ages, especially young children, and families.

Receiving exceptional comments from the media in Washington D.C for its originality and creativity, “The Land of Mulan” features an exciting cast, young performers from Xuejuan Dance School based in Herndon, VA. The school has been teaching Chinese classic and folk dances since 2009.

Dance in China has a long recorded history.  Classical Chinese dance is deeply rooted in the Chinese civilization. Depictions of dancing in China appeared over 4,000 years ago.

Its origins go back to dances in ancient imperial palaces and folk traditions that were passed down through the generations.

The art of dance in China reached a peak during the Tang Dynasty during the 7th and 10th century Silk Road period when numerous dances were recorded.

In more recent times dance has enjoyed a resurgence, and it is widely performed by the public and professionals alike.

While many Chinese dances have ancient pedigree, dance is also a continually evolving art form and modern developments in Chinese dances are continuing apace.

Xuejuan Dance Ensemble’s The Land of Mulan” perfectly combines the classic dance forms with modern dance movements, it is said to be the most exciting new production on the performing arts scene in the greater Washington DC metropolitan area!

This huge theatre event will take place at the famous and amazing Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia, a renowned venue with great amenities; parking is easily accessible, and it has some excellent food options with a perfect location for the enjoyment of whole family!
