Down memory lane
It is a quiet afternoon at the Baigongfang Crafts Centre, a new handicraft base in Chongwen District. The aisle is almost silent expect for some casual talk from the workshops on both sides. Then there comes the sound of a CD playing Peking Opera by Xi Xiaobo, one of the top four Xusheng (elderly male role in Peking Opera) performers of the last century, from a studio at the end of the aisle.
