Though these two are not dressed up, they are professional Peking Opera performers! Our school on Friday had a special talk from Gong Xiaoxiong, who is apparently a renown opera playwright. I wish the performers had dressed up in their traditional attire, but it was fun all the same. They sang some and showed some traditional Chinese opera movements (or motions) for us to better understand the elegance of the Chinese Opera. I love the Peking style of singing and I would encourage anyone to Google or YouTube some Traditional Chinese operas to get a better grasp of it! Enjoy!
