About This Book

China's stage art goes back a long way and survives in many forms in the country's cities, towns and villages. Close to a hundred varieties of opera with distinctive flavours and origins thrive on to this day. Of these, the one that boasts the longest tradition, highest degree of maturity and widest impact is arguably Beijing opera. In Tales from Beijing Opera, author Huang Shang provides readers with synopses of 20 well-known Beijing operas, including The Ruse of the Empty City, The Long Slope and Beauty Defies Tyranny.
