About the Artist:
The Shanghai Peking Opera Immersion Program ran as a pilot project in summer 2018. The program provided an unprecedented opportunity for Princeton students to engage in an intensive period of study and training in Chinese theater. It offered 3 weeks of intensive study and performance of the Northern style of Chinese drama (called “Peking Opera”) at the Shanghai Peking Opera Company (SPOC), based in Shanghai. Students picked at least one Peking Opera specialty to concentrate on: Song, Speech/Acting, Dance, Combat/Acrobatics, or Instruments.
Co-Sponsored by the East Asian Studies Program, in collaboration with the Office of Vice Provost for International Affairs.
