Performed by:
Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York

CAAC will once again bring you an afternoon of enjoyment of various Peking Opera classics featuring exceptional actors including Chunnuan Liu, Yu-Xia Liu and Qin-Yin Yue.

The lineup of programs are:

Farewell My Concubine
The play tells the story of Xiang Yu, the self-styled "Hegemon-King of Western Chu" who battled for the unification of China with Liu Bang, the eventual founder of the Han Dynasty.

Song Jiang Murder - WuLong Mansion
Starring Qin-Yin Yue (Laosheng) and Zhou Long-Chang (Huadan). It tells a story of a lady Yan Poxi (Mr. Zhou) threatens her husband Song Jiang (Mr. Yue) with divorce after learning his relationship with the outlaws. After several fights Song Jiang eventually kills Yan Poxi in anger after she threatens to accuse him in court. He then escapes and becomes a fugitive.

Havoc in Heaven
The Empire of Heaven was having a huge peach banquet, but did not invite the Monkey King. This angered the Monkey King so much that he went up to heaven before the banquet, and ate all the peaches and the Pills of Immortality intended for the banquet. He then proceeded to destroy many of Heaven's palaces.

Special thanks to Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York, for the usage of its auditorium.
