The Shaolin Chinese Academy Orchestra is now on the road.
Its newest show, the Shaoping Opera, premiered at the National Chengdu Opera Festival in the capital last month, and it is now heading to the Shanghai Chinese Opera Festival this year.
“We are looking forward to presenting our new work,” the Shaoling told The Sport on Thursday.
The show, a tribute to the “great Shaolin” that was performed at the Great Hall of the People in 1911, will be staged at the Shanghai Mandarin Opera Theatre this year, and a performance will be announced in early 2018.
“It is an important piece of art, and will bring a great sense of pride and joy to the people of Shanghai,” said Shaolin director Zhu Wei, adding that he hoped the show would be a source of pride for the city’s citizens.
The Beijing opera company also is working on an opera, but the director said that the production would be more “sophisticated”.
“We want to make a Chinese opera of the Shaodong stage,” Zhu told The Sunday Times.
I hope that people will have fun and have a good time.” “
The Shaolin is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
I hope that people will have fun and have a good time.”
A year ago, China’s ruling Communist Party, under Xi Jinping, began the process of modernising the country’s cultural institutions, including the national opera, to bring it up to international standards.
In May, China celebrated the 150th anniversary of its founding, and officials in Beijing celebrated a cultural renaissance in the arts, including a number of new cultural and artistic exhibitions, concerts, workshops and symposia.
“As the government has begun to modernise the countrys cultural institutions in the past year, the national symphony is a great success,” Zhu said.
“Now that the state has modernised its arts, we hope that our symphony can have the same kind of success as the national orchestra.”
The Shaoping is one of many cultural events taking place this year in China, including celebrations of the Great Wall of China and the National Day of Culture, as well as the National Year of the Sheep Festival.
Zhu said that a lot of the events this year were focused on “reunification and cultural co-existence”.
“The cultural events are about the two sides,” he said.
