Description

Greece can best be described as the birthplace of stage performances. Even an amphitheater of 1,900 years is not the country's oldest such facility. And the long tradition of theater has at least trained Greek ears and eyes for stage plays, even though it is an outlandish one.Greek audience was duly entertained by a Chinese Kun Opera. And they heartily appreciated the performance by the Suzhou Kun Opera Theater which is in Greece for the 2017 China-Greece Cultural Exchanges and Culture Industry Cooperation Year.The Chinese have done their best to render their performance a dialogue between a centuries-old Chinese musical drama and an as old Greek theater.The lead actor, Yu Jiulin, has been feeling excited about his Greek tour of performance."I've learned that the Herod Atticus Theater has a history of 1,900 years. It's a long history. And our Kun Opera also has a long history. It is described as the origin of all Chinese operas. It's like a dialogue between history and tradition. Now it comes my turn to hit the stage. I'm so excited about it. I look forward to rendering it as much a demonstration as a dialogue," said Yu Jiulin.Preparing for a Kun Opera performance can take hours. Make-up is extremely complex. Costumes and hair-dos and decorations are heavy and intricate. But for the Greek performance, it has taken up to two months to complete the technical preparation. This is because it is the first time for the Suzhou Kun Opera Theater to have ever performed on a theater in the open."We hope to find a blending platform for our oriental abstract artistry and the occidental Greek objectivity. So we've resorted to the placement of orchestra and arrangement of stage for a visual effect of reality," said Chai Shaohua, head of Suzhou Kun Opera Theater from east China's Jiangsu Province.The performance of the Kun Opera, The Peony Pavilion, turned out to be a big hit and the Chinese opera has greatly impressed the local audience."Many people loved it and found it fascinating especially because they have never seen something like that before and of course, Chinese opera visually is always magnificent. The music is so rich and special, so a lot of people were really excited about this. So it was an important milestone," said Aktina Stathaki, who is in charge of the China-Greece Year of Cultural Exchange Program at the Greek Ministry of Culture.For more dialogue, the Greek ministry and Chinese ensemble joined hands in offering a special workshop to local audiences and Chinese opera lovers. They showed them the interrelation between the overall performance and the music, make-up, costumes and characters. They found a Chinese-Greek interpreter to help the audiences better understand the tricky parts.The Suzhou Kun Opera Theater was founded in 1956 and has dedicated its last six years on reviving ancient Kun Opera repertories. The Peony Pavilion is among these repertories. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20170717...
