The Princeton University Peking Opera Shanghai Immersion Program (POSIP) will run virtually from May 31-June 11, 2021.
Instead of an in-person program in Shanghai, the Immersion Program will be held online for two full weeks with instruction from outstanding Peking Opera performers from Shanghai Peking Opera Company (SPOC) and the Hongyimei Peking Opera Theater (SHPOC). This change was made due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its associated travel and health risks. The virtual program is designed with small tutorials, workshops, and lectures for a two week  immersion program of intensive study and training in the Northern style of musical theater (called “Peking Opera”). Instruction will be in the medium of Chinese (Mandarin).

Based on traditional Chinese art aesthetics, the faculty will teach a knowledge of Peking Opera, Peking operatic singing style, recitative, movements, and other performance skills. Each student will be taught excerpts from famous Peking operas based on one of the four categories of performers: male, female, painted face, and clown.

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.

The information session will include a detailed presentation about the program, with excerpts from Peking operas and a Question and Answer period.
