The Chinese besiege the European compound and the animals killed to be eaten. Jack sings Randy a last lullaby before shooting him. In the war that follows, the Chinese are beaten and surrender Hong Kong. Dodo and Upward tell us how the British and French soldiers sacked the Imperial Summer Palace in Peking. Most of the British live happily ever after and the Chinese learn to kow-tow. SONGS: 1. The Blessed Trinity 2. The Bounty of the Earth 3. China Clipper 4. China Sequence 5. The Dragon Dance 6.
