On Sunday, November 6, The China National Peking Opera Company will give Australian audiences a rare opportunity to experience the fine art of Peking Opera when they perform the rarely seen masterpiece Warrior Women of Yang at Sydney’s State Theatre.
Warrior Women of Yang blends music, mime, martial arts, song and spectacle and provides an exceptional opportunity to take a cultural adventure into China’s traditional artistic heritage and to experience a visual feast presented on a three-dimensional stage design.
A story of courage, patriotism, grief and family loyalty, Warrior Women of Yang features a cast of more than 50, headed by China’s top opera stars Li Shengsu and Yu Kuizhi. It includes choreographed stage combat and acrobatics presented by professional martial arts performers whose talents all combine to present a high-energy, adrenaline-packed show.
In 2015, Sunday Express wrote, “This mix of death-defying acrobatics and ancient Chinese tradition is a breath of fresh air… a must see.”
