Chinese Kunqu Opera Info
Kunqu Opera, also known as Kunju or Kun opera was founded before Ming Dynasty in Kun Shan, It is held in great respect and is regarded as the sister opera of Beijing Opera and It's one of the oldest forms of opera still existing in China, In 2001, the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization proclaimed Kunqu Opera as a masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of humanity.

The Peony Pavilion
It is a play written by Tang Xianzu in the Ming Dynasty and first performed in 1598 at the Pavilion of Prince Teng. One of Tang's 'Four Dreams', it has traditionally been performed as a Kunqu opera, but Chuan and Gan opera versions also exist. It is by far the most popular play of the Ming Dynasty, and is the primary showcase of the guimendan role type. All Kun theatre troupes include it in their repertoire. Recent adaptations have sought to inject new life into one of China's best-loved classical operas, though such efforts have met with opposition from the Kun opera traditionalists.

Kunqu Famous Performers
Many famous Beijing Opera players were also great performers of Kunqu Opera. Skilling in both operas was a remarkable respect of achievement. It was common for a joint performance in Beijing Opera or Kunqu Opera which involved actors and actresses from both sides. Mei Lanfang was famous for his sensitive portrayal of Du Liniang. The most famous actress of recent years is likely Zhang Jiqing's traditional approach out of Nanjing's Jiangsu Province Kun Opera.
