David Henry Hwang's modern classic examines the scandalous romance between a married French diplomat and a mysterious Chinese opera singer. The couple's 20-year relationship pushed and blurred the boundaries between male and female as well as East and West, all while redefining the nature of love and the devastating cost of deceit. This remarkable love story, encompassing international espionage and personal betrayal, is based on the real-life love affair between Bernard Boursicot and Shi Pei Pu.

For the Tony Award-winning play's first Broadway return, Hwang introduces new material inspired by historical information that has surfaced since the play's 1988 premiere. Julie Taymor (The Lion King) directs a cast that includes Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Clive Owen (Closer).
