Chinese soprano sings French songs

More than a decade ago, soprano Zhang Liping became the first Chinese-born singer to play a lead role in Giacomo Puccini's Madame Butterfly at the New York Metropolitan Opera. During her stay abroad, she also performed in operatic productions, such as La Traviata, Turandot, Faust and Carmen, in Europe and the United States.

She returned to China in 2006 and has since worked as the director of the department of vocal music and opera at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing.

On May 12, Zhang will hold a concert in the capital when she will highlight French composers Gabriel Faure, Henri Duparc and others from French operas.
