Led by artistic director Wu Hsing-Kuo, Taiwan’s Contemporary Legend Theatre gives fresh life to traditional Beijing opera. The time is 207 B.C. … As the drama unfolds in Farewill, My Concubine_, arch-rivals — the Chu King Xiang Yu, and Liu Bang of the Han — battle fiercely. Imperial consort Lady Yu seeks to console Xiang with wine and her famous sword dance. In The Tipsy Concubine_, opera master Mei Lanfang’s signature work set in the later era of the Tang Dynasty, the “four flat aria” style is a perfect operatic combination of singing, reciting, dancing, and music.
