Chinese Version of Romeo and Juliet Takes Center Stage 2017-06-27
Originating from Zhejiang Province, Yue Opera has enjoyed prestigious status since its foundation and is the most widely spread opera in China and it is also the second national opera after Peking Opera.


Formed by a mélange of different theatrical genres such as Kunqu Opera, stage play and Shao Opera, Yue Opera is expressed through heavenly singing making it an elaborately staged performance.


When mentioning Yue Opera we think of ‘Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai’, a play and household name that is ranked among the ‘Top Four Folk Love Stories in China’. In fact this is the first Chinese folk story that has ever achieved international fame and which is known as the Chinese counterpart of Romeo and Juliet.


This love story has touched thousands of hearts and has been the favorite of generations of artists and when the People’s Republic of China was established Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai was the first Yue opera to have been given the honor of performing before Chairman Mao and Premier Zhou Enlai.


It is this same classic that will be taking center stage on December 19 in the People's Great Hall of Zhejiang Province where the audience’s hearts and minds will be enlightened by both what they see and hear.
