Adventures of the Monkey King: The Golden Hooped Rod

So…parents, it’s been about 2 weeks of school holiday and you have 2 more weeks to go. How are you coping with your children? Have you been keeping them on their toes or they are getting restless at home?

As a parent myself, I understand how restless and bored children can get during school holidays. Looking for something fun and entertaining to do with your kids and been cracking your brain for fun stuff to do? Here’s a suggestion.

Bring them to watch Adventures of the Monkey King: The Golden Hooped Rod at Resorts World Genting.

The Monkey King is a mythological figure in Journey to the West, one of the most popular classical novels in China. As a child, I’ve always loved the Journey to The West Story.

My favourite character is of course, Sun Wukong The Monkey King. I have always wanted to meet the Monkey King as a child, and now that Resorts World Genting has brought Nanjing Acrobatic Troupe with their magical 3D theatre performance, Adventures of the Monkey King: The Golden Hooped Rod, everyone can see Monkey King in action, and live at that, no less.

The show is rather new, starting only in 2016. This theatrical production that will no doubt remind its viewers about the beauty of live theatre and culture, is another example of how the eternal battle between good and evil never gets old as a storyline. Performed by talents from all over China specializing in acrobatic performances, who are also members of the National Performing Art Troupe.

The story begins in the event after the Monkey King has claimed the Golden-Hooped Rod from the East China Sea.

It is discovered that the enemy of the rod, Chi You, has also been released, and now intends to destroy it.

In order to battle Chi You, the Monkey King and the rod must work together and go through Mana Practice, an exercise that enhances one’s life energy.

The Monkey King manages to master the ability, but then the rod reveals its weakness, something that Chi You is also aware of.

As it turns out, Chi You manages to lure the rod back to the East Coast Sea and imprison it.This, of course, leads to the ultimate battle between the Monkey King and Chi You.

Tickets to enjoy the show are priced at RM176 (VIP), RM136 (PS1) and RM96 (PS2). Genting Rewards Card (GRC) members enjoy 10% discount.
