Chicago premiere of opera star Ling Ke and the Tianjin Peking Opera Company.
Chinese opera star Ling Ke and the members of the Tianjin Peking Opera Company will perform a variety of world-famous Peking Opera highlights in their Chicago premiere. Among the inspired opera highlights are Wu Song Kills the Tiger, A Dragon Flirts with a Phoenix, and The Ghost of the Black Pot. These highlights will feature the characteristic artistry and charm that has made Ling Ke one of the finest young male performers in China today, as well as traditional Chinese instrumentalists, performers specializing in comic, martial, and dramatic roles, and dazzling costumes.
This performance is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Consulate General of The People’s Republic of China in Chicago and the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations.
