Magic Mirror The Musical 2011 @ Istana Budaya, Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur671123
Magic Mirror The Musical sets its scene on legend of Guan Yin at the time of Tang Dynasty in China, a time where culture and society were rich and colorful.
Fights within clangs erupted, resulting peaceful villages drowning in immense suffering. Under the influence of demons, a cruel general along with his henchmen, destroying all who opposed him. In the battles, homes, families, and loved ones were destroyed. Guan Yin manifests first as a wise general, fearlessly guides the righteous soldiers in their defeat and ultimately overthrown the cruel general; he then manifests himself as a lady dressed in white clothes, teaching the villagers and bandits about love, compassion, patience and tolerance by pretended selling a small copper mirror for a very high price. This is a magic mirror that allows one to see one´s past karma and its future result. At this juncture, the demons appear to ridicule and strike. In the ensuing scuffle, a young girl dies protecting her father. Seeing this sacrifice, the demons put an end to their evil act.
The lady in white, holding the girl´s body, disappears. At the place of her disappearance, some see a peaceful face, others a semi-wrathful face, and others still a ferocious face. It slowly dawns on the assembled people that the lady in white was none other than Guan Yin, appearing through her great compassion in order to help and heal the people of the village
