Confucius: 63 Revisited

At the age of 73, Confucius was holding a high rank nominally while stepping towards the end of his life journey. The occasionally visit of his students recalled some old memories. Confucius was 63 when he was appointed by King Zhao to set off for the State of Chu. Yet, on the way, he encountered his toughest year of life. At the edge of life and death, should he hold on his faith, or grasp the next chance in the future?

Based on real history, Confucius: 63 Revisited is an original drama production that reshapes the image of Confucius as a paragon from a humanistic perspective, and unfolds the Maestro’s hidden stories that are rarely known.
