Is it clear what is so great about Beijing Opera? Is Peking Opera the quintessence of China or the slag of China? Why does Beijing Opera stand out among the world's arts? Has our understanding of Peking Opera always been influenced by Western ideas? This book tries to answer seemingly simple questions about Peking Opera that have never been clearly answered. Behind the popular and vivid explanation that Peking Opera is a "great game," it provides a new way to review the traditional Chinese Culture and traditional aesthetics today.
