Add to Calendar 25-02-2014 25-02-2014 15 Hangzhou Yue Opera Company - Hedda Performed throughout China and Europe, Hangzhou Yue Opera Company's contemporary opera adaptations have been well-received across the globe. Two of their celebrated works will be presented, with one classic Ibsen tale performed each night. The pieces have been adapted to be set in China and their costumes, makeup, symbols, and staging reflect a distinctive Chinese sensibility. Hedda (based on Hedda Gabler) focuses on a highly intelligent woman, recently wed for practicality rather than love, whose jealousy leads her down a path to tragedy. Yue Opera, performed by all female actors, is one of the most popular traditional operas in China. Beginning as a form of storytelling and ballad-singing, it has evolved into a theatrical genre with the addition of dramatic structure and an orchestra. Yue Opera is particularly strong in its lyrical touch, with singing and gesturing as its main acting modes. Its arias follow certain patterns which are delicate and beautiful, reflecting the special aura of southern China. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=151470 NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
