Peking Opera is a form of traditional Chinese theatre which combines music, vocal performance, mime, dance and acrobatics. It arose in the late 18th century and has come to be regarded as one of the cultural treasures of China.
Peking Opera features four main types of performers. With their elaborate and colourful costumes, performers are the only focal points on Peking Opera's characteristically sparse stage. They utilise the skills of speech, song, dance and combat in movements that are symbolic and suggestive, rather than realistic.
Above all else, the skill of performers is evaluated according to the beauty of their movements. The layers of meaning within each movement must be expressed in time with the music.
'Elaborately choreographed... an epic charmer' (Jan Parry, The Observer, on Legend Of The White Snake, 2005)
'It remains for me one of the most thrilling, most penetratingly true of theatrical experiences' (Clement Crisp, Financial Times, on Legend Of The White Snake, 2005).
