INTERNATIONAL TOURING EXHIBITION
The Quintessence of Chinese Culture: The Costumes & Makeup Art of Peking Opera
Peking Opera is an elegant and exquisite art form that profoundly reflects the spirit and aspirations of China. In this international touring exhibition, Shenyang Normal University provides viewers with an inside look at the rich history and tradition of Chinese opera. Images and artifacts of traditional costume pieces and makeup designs from Peking Opera (the country’s most prevalent form of opera) reveal the dramatic beauty and emotion of one of the world’s oldest civilizations. Free and open to the campus and community during regular library hours.
This event is presented as part of the November 2019 Shenyang Normal University China visit to Shenandoah University. Visit www.su.edu/blog/2019/10/delegation-from-shenyang-normal-university-china-visits-campus-to-share-expertise-in-chinese-opera to learn more and explore additional events.
