Product Description

With a history of more than 500 years, Chinese Kunqu drama ruled as the dominant form of classical theater during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911), and is considered to be the zenith of Chinese classical theater. This fascinating book, presented in both English and Chinese, highlights 26 acts drawn from 9 beloved Kunqu plays, including The Jade Pin, The Peony Pavilion, The Palace of Eternal Youth, and others. Kunqu today stands as a towering influence on drama and music. This book will be of great interest to anyone who is a fan of Kunqu drama, as well as Chinese language learners who wish to explore additional cultural source material.
