The Peking Opera is coming to Greenville Tech

Published on Monday, September 17, 2012

The Peking Opera will be performed Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. in the J. Verne Smith Auditorium on the Barton Campus of Greenville Tech. A $5 donation is requested for attendance.

With its fascinating and artistic accompanying music, singing, and costumes, the Peking Opera is China’s national opera. The opera presents the audience with information on Chinese culture as it entertains with unfolding stories, beautiful paintings, exquisite costumes, graceful gestures, and martial arts.

In Peking Opera, there are four roles: the male and female roles, the painted face role, and the comedic role. These roles have the natural features of age and sex, as well as social status, and are artificially exaggerated by makeup, costume, and gestures.

The International Education Center at Greenville Technical College and the Presbyterian College Confucius Institute present The Peking Opera.
