Pro­mot­ing Tra­di­tional Opera

ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

Chi­nese Gov­ern­ment has pledged to pro­mote tra­di­tional opera in schools.

Pri­mary schools, sec­ondary schools, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties are re­quired to of­fer stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to watch tra­di­tional opera free of charge in 2018, ac­cord­ing to a guide­line re­cently is­sued by the Min­istry of Cul­ture, the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion and the Min­istry of Fi­nance.

Start­ing next year, stu­dents in all schools and col­leges na­tion­wide can watch an opera free of charge ev­ery year. Ac­cord­ing to the guide­line, the cam­paign for tra­di­tional opera to reach stu­dents will be com­mon in all schools by 2020.

Ex­perts be­lieve that the cam­paign can raise Chi­nese stu­dents’ in­ter­ests in Chi­nese op­eras and can help pro­tect the tra­di­tional art.

Pek­ing Opera and Opera are listed by UNESCO as in­tan­gi­ble cul­tural her­itages.
