Live from Beijing, a rare opportunity to enjoy the excitement, color and action of Beijing Opera. Imagine a small army of performers somersaulting across the stage, twirling spears and tossing swords, executing superb martial art movesĘCall the while singing melodiously, costumed in magnificent silk brocades and multi-colored makeup. That is the theatrical wonder you will experience when the International Monkey King Troupe starring Ghaffar Pourazar performs The Adventures of the Monkey King. Beijing Opera is widely regarded as the highest expression of Chinese culture and it has deeply influenced the hearts of the Chinese people. In Beijing Opera the stage has no limits in time or spaceí¬using costume, makeup, and physical theater it becomes the setting for action that ranges from the highest heavens to realms under the ocean.
