Official description

Seven auspicious creatures in Chinese myth will be brought to life on stage during the opening of “Siam Paragon The Prosperous Chinese New Year 2016” festival at Siam Paragon’s Parc Paragon on Friday at 5.30pm and then daily at 6.30pm until Feb 8.

This is the first time Lok Chee Fu, a famous Hong Kong theatre company with a history that has lasted for 80 years, will bring the “Seven Auspicious Creatures In Chinese Myth” performance to Bangkok to tell the story about love, wealth, abundance and happiness.

Accompanied by dazzling LED lighting, the one-hour show will feature seven symbolic creatures — dragon, swan, lion, qilin, pixiu, dragon fish and magic monkey. Believed to be the most auspicious creature of all, the dragon symbolises power and greatness.
The swan is a symbol of the empress and the lion is a symbol of protection and has the power to ward off demons.

The qilin is believed to bring fortune as it’s able to get rid of all things unpropitious, while the pixiu brings good luck and wards off misfortune. Dragon fish are a symbol of wealth, success and affluence, whereas the magic monkey is a hero of great power. He is respected by the Chinese for his wit and courage.

There is no admission fee. Call 02-610-8000.
