The Ballad of Mulan
The story of the real woman behind the Chinese Legend

​Performed by Michelle Yim

Written and Directed by Ross Ericson

Weapon and Armour by Philip Dell

Costume by Elizabeth Cooke

A woman, a warrior, a Chinese legend.


Michelle Yim ('The Empress and Me' and 'The Unforgettable Anna May Wong') brings to life the real Mulan who, to save her family's honour, disguised herself as a man and joined the Emperor's army. For ten years she has kept her identity a secret. Now the fighting is coming to an end, one last battle and she will be going home – but how can she return to her old life, become a woman again, does she even want to?  A search for identity in a violent world.

This is Michelle's third solo show and is developed with funding support from Arts Council England.
