"The peony pavilion" and "hot" kunqu opera
Literary works such as people, as well as national, was quite different. The peony pavilion was, at the beginning of the rhetoric around it and the law and the article style had a fierce debate; The evaluation of Shakespeare, is mixed. But argue about the value of Shakespeare's works and grade soon fade away, not only did he become the darling of the British folk drama market, its work more as a recognized in Europe and even the world literature classic, in widely; And tang xianzu known examples of "linchuan four dreams", "peony pavilion", be called great in the history of human theater jie universally acknowledged in the world of kunqu opera, the other three films, only the occasional purple hair pin ji complete performance, the other two only a small number of selected records.
