The Peony Pavilion: A Spoiled Romance
An experimental Chinese opera with a touch of contemporary theatrical presentation
Following the success of last year's Peking opera What Is Done Can't Be Undone, The Peony Pavilion: A Spoiled Romance is another effort to open up alternative doors for Chinese operatic performance. Based on the popular story of The Peony Pavilion, this work sets out to examine the absurd relationship among a puppet, his master and a goddess who controls their destiny. It has incorporated contemporary music, and various theatrical motifs to merge into traditional story-telling. In August, this programme has participated in the "Asian Performing Arts Festival" in Tokyo.
Based on the Kunqu opera Ourenji by Chen Jianqiu
Director: Li Liuyi Composer: Zhou Ye Kunju composer: Wang Dayuan
