HASH(0x9e19dc30) out of 5 stars An Exquisite Translation! Feb. 10 2014
By Rainbow6 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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!
