Experiencing China---《A PRIMER OF BEIJING OPERA》

When you open this book your first question may well be, "What exactly is Beijing opera?" Beijing opera transcends Chance theater, in which gesture and movement provide the vehicle by which a story is told. And it surpasses traditional theater, which employs spoken dialogue to portray its characters and propel plot development.

The twenty-six stories introduced in this book have been selected from the two hundred most frequently performed Beijing operas such as Farewell My Concubine, The Drunken Beauty, Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, etc. We hope that reading them will give you insight into both the lives and culture of the Chinese people.


We are making every effort to bring you the best reading experience.
