Main Library

Kunqu Opera is the foremost Chinese operatic performing art for the past 600 years, originating in Kunshan – Durham’s sister city. This art form is considered a perfect combination of poetry, music, dance and drama, and UNESCO proclaimed it a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Lydia Hodgson will discuss the music and costumes, and will present an excerpt from “The Peony Pavilion.” This program is co-sponsored by the Zhuzhou Committee of Sister Cities of Durham.
