The 11-day theatrical event will present visitors to Wuzhen with 16 classic stage plays from seven countries.
The founders of the festival include Chen Xianghong, Stan Lai, Huang Lei and Meng Jinghui while Eugenio Barba, a renowned theatre director based in Denmark's Odin Theatre, will be the honorary chairman of this year's Metamorphoses-themed event.
