Peking Opera Codes

Peking Opera is the quintessence of Chinese culture, delighting and attracting numerous people home and abroad.

Overview:

Profound and extensive, Peking Opera is the quintessence of Chinese culture, delighting and attracting numerous people home and abroad. With the feminine sensibility and delicateness, the author of this book retrospects the history, figures and legends of Peking Opera from the perspective of a modern Chinese, as well as its schools, personas and costumes.

Her interpretations are unique and appealing, whereas her paintings are so full of wild imagination that they have a dramatic air of their own, matching the spiritual soliloquy wonderfully. Besides, every picture offers the readers related background knowledge, including basic knowledge of Peking Opera, stories, genuine libretto and corresponding photos.
