Based on the book The Biography of the Sakyamuni Buddha by Venerable Master Hsing Yun, Siddhartha The Musical retells the story of a timeless, prominent historic figure.
From its humble beginnings, Siddhartha has attracted artists and performers who have performed in the international stage. Siddhartha the Musical has so far performed 58 shows in the Philippines, the United States, Taiwan as well as in China.
