I've always wanted to see a Chinese opera and was delighted, even though I could not understand the language. Excellent performances, costumes, and sets.

It was a first time for us and it was very intersting. We loved the customs and the idea of going to an opera. However, the music itself was not our cup of tea.

We're not sorry we went but select a different type next time.

Description

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.
