I caught the last episode of “Imagine” on iPlayer last night. It featured a very interesting documentary about Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn moving into the world of Chinese opera. Drawing on the 1970s cult television series, Monkey – Journey to the West has a cast that includes the cloud-hopping, mountain-somersaulting Monkey, his mates Pigsy, Sandy and Tripitaka and more. This film follows Albarn and Hewlett on a journey from Beijing to Paris, working with martial artists and acrobats; leading up to its world premiere at the Manchester International Festival.

Be really up for seeing this. According to the official site, its on at the Royal Opera House tonight and tomorrow.
