"Farewell My Concubine" Chinese Opera Performance and Q & A

Tue, Sep 19, 2017, 7:00 pm

Farewell My Concubine is a famous play of the Peking opera-style. The play tells the story of Xiang Yu, the self-styled "Hegemon-King of Western Chu" who battled for the unification of China with Liu Bang, the eventual founder of the Han Dynasty.

A segment of the opera will be performed by Shang Changrong and Shi Yihong in Alexander Hall (a 45 minute performance), followed by Q & A.

Director: Sherwood Hu

The Shanghai Jingju Theatre Company was established in March 1955 as the Shanghai Peking Opera Company (SPOC).

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Contemporary China, the Chinese Linguistics Project, the East Asian Studies Program, the Music Department, the Lewis Center for the Arts and Center for Performing Arts, and the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
