Peking opera on world stage

By Wang Kaihao | China Daily | Updated: 2015-06-02 07:11

Sun Ping has spent her career mixing Peking Opera with Western classics in a bid to bring the Chinese art form to audiences across the globe. Wang Kaihao reports.

As dozens of foreign students took their final curtain calls in front of an excited audience at Beijing Foreign Studies University, Sun Ping, a Peking Opera veteran in her early 50s, was overcome with excitement.

"Even the biggest stars of Peking Opera don't get cheered for every line they sing," she says. "However, these students almost do. It's the power of cultural resonance."
