CGTN published this video item, entitled “Live: Explore vocal rehearsal for classic Peking Opera play ‘Baidicheng'” – below is their description.
“Baidicheng” is a classic Peking Opera play adapted from a 14th-century Chinese historical novel, “Romance of the Three Kingdoms.” In the 85th episode, Emperor Liu Bei dies of sickness in Baidicheng, leaving his son, Liu Shan, to administer state affairs together with Military Advisor General Zhuge Liang and regard Zhuge as Liu Shan’s father. Join CGTN for a look at the vocal practice of “Baidicheng,” which is a rehearsal without makeup and acting that mainly involves singing along with the band.
Baidicheng literally means “White Emperor City,” which is an ancient fortress and temple complex located at the top of Mount Baidi on the northern bank of the Yangtze River, in Fengjie County of Chongqing Municipality, southwest China.#NihaoPekingOpera @Nihao Peking OperaCGTN YouTube Channel
