The centuries old legend of the Cowherd and the Textile Lady is a classical love story beyond time in Chinese society. The yearning of the lovers separated by fate transcends space while the longing for their brief annual reunion is echoed through time.

Originally composed by CHEN Si-Sum with choreography by HSU Hui-Mei, Eternal Love across the Magpie Bridge  was a pioneering work for contemporary Taiwanese folk dance in the 1980s. It caused quite a stir after the premiere in 1984 and was brought back on stage during the 1995 Taipei International Dance Festival with sold-out performances. Forty years later, TCO commissioned HUA Li-Mei to update the choreography based on CHU Yun-Song's new orchestration, with additional multimedia and modern stage spectacles. The audience will be treated with a refreshing view of the classical love story which aims for a lingering night that never sleeps.
