Yueju Opera
•
•
•
Yueju opera (simplified Chinese: 越剧; traditional Chinese: 越劇; pinyin: Yuèjù, Yue
opera) is a form of Chinese opera founded around 1906 in Shengzhou, Zhejiang
province. Over time, it grew in popularity, now the second most popular form of
Chinese opera only to the Peking opera.[1][2] It is highly popular in Zhejiang,
Shanghai, Jiangsu and Fujian, while its audiences are all over China.
Originated from the folks and ballad singing of rural area in Zhejiang, by drawing the
experience of other developed Chinese opera forms such as Peking opera and
Kunqu, Yueju Opera became popular in Shanghai in early 1930s. During the Second
Sino-Japanese War, Yueju performers in Shanghai launched a movement to reform
the Yueju performance, including learning from Western cultures, which made Yueju
opera remarkably different with other forms of Chinese opera. After the foundation of
People's Republic of China, Yueju opera was welcomed by the government and
Communist Party of China at first, and reached a pinnacle popularity in late 1950s
and early 1960s. However, during the Cultural Revolution, like other traditional
Chinese art forms, Yueju performances were outlawed, which cause a serious
setback in its development. Since the 1980s, Yueju became popular again, while
being challenged by new amusement forms.
Yueju opera features elegant and soft, which made it suitable for telling love stories. It
was initially performed by men only, but female groups started performing in the style
in 1923, and during the 1930s, the form became female-only.

Peony Pavilion
•
•
The Peony Pavilion (Chinese: 牡丹亭; pinyin: mǔdāntíng) is a play written by Tang Xianzu in the
Ming Dynasty and first performed in 1598 at the Pavilion of Prince Teng.[1] One of Tang's "Four
Dreams", it has traditionally been performed as a Kunqu (昆曲/崑曲) opera, but Chuan (川) and
Gan (赣/贛) opera versions also exist. It is by far the most popular play of the Ming Dynasty, and is
the primary showcase of the guimendan (闺门旦/閨門旦) role type. All Kun theatre troupes include
it in their repertoire. Recent adaptations have sought to inject new life into one of China's bestloved classical operas, though such efforts have met with opposition from the Kun opera
traditionalists.
Comments of Peony Pavilion
Albeit conventional in its narrative structure, notably its deus ex machina ending, The Peony
Pavilion is distinguished particularly by the play's highly refined and subtle lyrics and is hailed as
another height in Chinese literature. Aided by the then newly developed Kun music, the lyrical
proses of the Peony Pavilion weave a fabric of nuances and metaphors that elegantly
transgresses the divide between the beauty of nature and man's inner cosmos of emotions and
desires. Through the lights and shadows of its lyrical fabric transpire a ravishing sensitivity and
intoxicating effeteness and, almost antithetically, a persistent tone of youthful optimism. The magic
of the play's language quickly carries the audience to a unique experience of literary and musical
pleasure. The Peony Pavilion is a banquet of metaphors, a dance of the imagination and most of
all, a celebration of sensitivity. For this reason it sets the measure for all later Kun operas.
These features are particularly prominent in three of the earliest acts, "A walk in the Garden" (游园
/遊園), "The Interruption Of a Dream" (惊梦/驚夢)(these two acts were grouped as a single act in
the original text) and "Reflection On the Lost Dream" (寻梦/尋夢), which are generally considered
the apogee of Chinese kunqu for their literary achievements as well as for their musicality,
choreography and the integration of all these components. For these reasons the play's lyrics
pose a daunting challenge to attempts at their translation.
Shortly after their completion, the original scores of the opera by Tang Xianzu (汤显祖),
considered awkward and difficult for performers, were greatly revised by Shen Jing (沈璟), a major
figure in the formation of Chinese kunqu, not without many disputes and resistance from Tang
Xianzu himself.
