The Peony Pavilion

The great classical stage art of Kunqu is an ancestor of Peking Opera that first became popular in the 16th century. Kunqu was to remain China's dominant national theatrical form for some 300 years, and although it lost its place as the nation's preeminent form of theatre with the rise of Peking Opera, a number of Kunqu troupes still perform regularly. They not only stage the great classics and create new ones, but they also make imaginative adaptations of some of those time-honored pieces. The Shanghai Kunqu Troupe's production of The Peony Pavilion is one of these. (More)
