An Evening of Kun Opera
An Evening of Kun Opera: Highlights from
The Jade Hairpin and The Peony Pavilion

Kun opera, or kunqu, is one of the oldest and most refined forms of opera in China. The genre was a popular leisurely activity frequently staged in the private garden residences of Suzhou during the 16th to 18th centuries. The Huntington's Liu Fang Yuan, the Garden of Flowing Fragrance, modeled after such gardens, offers us a wonderful opportunity to explore this traditional genre that almost disappeared. The program will feature two well-known scenes including "Flirting with a Zither" from The Jade Hairpin and the famous "Wandering in the Garden" from The Peony Pavilion, the classic 16th century play by Tang Xianzu (1550-1616).
