The Year of the Serpent
Composer:Erin Huelskamp
Librettist:Shannon Rosa
Synopsis
Li Chi, a brave and dutiful heroine, approaches the cave of a vile, virgin-devouring Serpent on a mission to return peace to her kingdom. Having sworn to protect her village from the serpent's control, she begins to set a trap to lure him from the cave, a plan quickly thwarted by his lustful hunger and cunning.

Li Chi, declaring that she could slay the Serpent with nothing more than a simple blade and a keen-nosed dog, counters him with an equally commanding tale of how she stood up to the royal guards in front of her entire village. In their last, great battle, Li Chi does not fall victim to the beautiful flower being offered by the Serpent but instead, overpowers him in a moment of willful bravery. After Li Chi slays the Serpent and frees the spirit girls from their confinement on earth, she makes the biggest decision of all: will she go home to the village and be hailed a hero, or travel on to other lands to seek out new adventures?
