1-DragonPrincess 5D 2160A Teochew Opera – Tale of the Dragon Princess By Teochew Puppet & Opera House 檳城潮藝館年度大戲 Part 5

A simple fable about the daughter of the Dragon King of the Eastern Sea falling in love with a commoner is told here. The Princess then gave a red branch of red magical coral to the scholar as her token of her love. Both departed as the scholar was on his way to the Chinese Capital for his examinations. There was a jealous suitor from the sea world – General Carp who was also has an eye on the Dragon Princess. He complained to the Dragon King and the Princess and her maid were punished by being made into human beings from their diety status earlier. They were adopted by the Prime Minister of China. The scholar used a portion of the red coral to heal an ailment of the Emperor and thus bestowed with riches beyond his dreams. The Prime Minister wanted him to marry his adopted daughter. However, the scholar was reluctant as he has his heart for the Dragon Princess of the Eastern Sea not knowing she was already made into a commoner. However, he was forced to marry the adopted daughter and later found out that she was his true love. All well that’s end well as the Dragon Princess was restored her original diety status again. So, ends the story, my version.
