NYC en­joys Pek­ing Opera

China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - 12 Life -

NEW YORK — An authen­tic Pek­ing Opera show staged by per­form­ers from both China and the United States drew a crowd of over 500 en­thu­si­as­tic fans in New York on the af­ter­noon of Nov 17.

The three-and-a-half hour show, en­ti­tled The Bat­tle of Red Cliffs, brought to­gether some big names from mod­ern Pek­ing Opera cir­cles, such as Ma Shao­liang, Liu Yong­gui and Zhang Jing­tao, at a Pace Univer­sity theater in lower Man­hat­tan.

The show is on the story of a de­ci­sive bat­tle in an­cient China from around 1,800 years ago, which led to the emer­gence of three sep­a­rate states in the coun­try, his­tor­i­cally known as the Pe­riod of the Three King­doms.
