An opera in two acts, with music by Reine Jönsson. The story is set in two parallel worlds that become entwined by the end. We encounter the Monkey King and the Chinese World of the Gods at the same time as we accompany young Cecilia on her adventurous voyage aboard an East India vessel from Gothenburg to China. Cecilia and the Monkey King is sung in a make-believe language that serves as English, Chinese, Italian and Swedish. The libretto’s deeper meaning is left to the audience´s own imagination.
