Red Theater Beijing, Chinese Kungfu Show - the Legend of Kung Fu

Beijing Red Theater

Beijing Red Theater, originally the Chongwen Worker's Palace, is located at 44, Xingfu Street, Dongcheng District. Every night it presents an excellent show of the prestigious Chinese Kung Fu (martial arts). The Chinese Kungfu Show, named the Legend of Kung Fu, follows the story of a young boy trying to fulfill his dream of becoming a Kung Fu master.

This boy is called Chun Yi (pure one) and was sent to a Buddhist temple to be a monk at a young age. Initially, the young monk had a hard time getting used to the strict discipline of the temple until he became interested in the unbelievable power of Kung Fu. From then on he worked hard on Kung Fu and made great achievements on the way to growing up. However, the young Chun Yi could not restrain his natural desire to chase a young beauty, so he suffered great regret and losing his way to self-cultivation. Chun Yi punished himself severely and finally returned to the way of seeking enlightenment. At the end of the Kung Fu show, Chun Yi is praised for being a great Buddhist master of Chinese Kung Fu.
