"Magic Wonderland," a musical based on original comics, was staged last Sunday at the PLA Theatre in Beijing. The show employs modern technologies to demonstrate the magical theme, allowing the audience to enjoy a new kind of experience.

Flames devour the woods, a time tunnel appears from nowhere, and beautiful fairies fight demons. As actors give stunning performances, the huge 3-D screen behind them provides a excellent backdrop to create a magical visual effect.

"Magic Wonderland" tells a story about Haiying, a brave little girl who goes through many troubles and difficulties to get reunited with her mother. The show combines multiple elements like music, dance, opera, and acrobatics. Actors even go into the auditorium, literally getting in touch with the audience.

The music of the show is another feature. From free-form Jazz to pop rock, from folk tones to children's songs, the musical team behind the show has made quite a bold experiment of mix-and-match.

The 3-D movie version of "Magic Wonderland" was shown in over 60 countries and regions last year. Based on its success, and after writing a more interesting storyline, and adding high-tech theatrical effects, the new musical hopes to attract a large audience.
