The Peking Opera Immersion Program in Shanghai provides an unprecedented opportunity for Princeton students to engage in an intensive period of study and training in Chinese theater from  It offers 3 weeks of study and performance of the Northern style of Chinese drama (called “Peking Opera”) at the Shanghai Peking Opera Company (SPOC), based in Shanghai. Students will learn four skills of Peking Opera--Song, Speech/Acting, Dance, Combat/Acrobatics.

Normally, the minimum requirement for admission is two years of college-level instruction in Chinese; other students with equivalent abilities are also eligible. The program will award certificates, but no Princeton credit will be given.
