Hunan's artists attend 2016 Edinburgh Festival
The 2016 Edinburgh Festival is being held through to August 29, during which the Hunan Kunqu Opera Troupe will retell Shakespeare's most famous love story "Romeo and Juliette."
During the festival Chinese dramas featuring Tang Xianzu and William Shakespeare's works will be performed, to mark four centuries since the passing of two important dramatists from opposite sides of the world.
A program of shows from Chinese performers will introduce the international audience to Chinese drama; showcase several styles of Chinese opera.
The story of tragic love "Romeo and Juliette" will be performed in Kunqu opera style—a traditional form of Chinese singing. The adaptation is directed by Wang Xiaoying.
