Book Description

June 4 2010

Princess Changping, or Di Nü Hua, has become the most renowned Cantonese opera since its 1957 premier in Hong Kong. The opera is a serious political drama played out between the Han and non-Han following the fall of the Ming Dynasty, and the plot pits romantic love against the lofty Confucian ideals of social hierarchy and moral rectitude. This edition is the first complete English translation of the opera, featuring text, song titles, speech types, and choreographic and stage setting, therefore making this volume a superior reference for Chinese opera courses taught in English-speaking institutions worldwide.

I am so happy to finally read a complete translation of this entire Cantonese Opera! Professor Bell Yung and her team had done a beautiful job in translating this exquisite play that represents the profundity of the Chinese minds, the Tao of virtues, the depth and breadth of eternal love from the Chinese perspectives. This epic love story has influenced and permeated millions of Chinese households from around the world from generation to generation. Most who love this play have seen it multiple times and sing along with the stunning lyrics thousands of times! My deep gratitude for this book--- now I can share this opera with my English-speaking friends who have loved the music, the refined singing and melody, and who want to know all the subtle nuances of this opera's literary contents! I highly recommend this book!
