Summary: "This book will act as a powerful introduction to the story of Beijing Opera over the course of the twentieth century with a particularly strong emphasis on the Communist period and its influence on contemporary performance. Using excellent oral history research and with a strong focus on practice and performance techniques, Li Ruru places the genre in both its historical and global context: not a timeless Chinese tradition, but a product of China's turbulent twentieth century and the global interactions that were a key part of that history." -- Henrietta Harrison, Harvard University.

The book looks at the evolution of Beijing Opera's singing and performance styles, make-up and costume, audience demands, as well as stage and street presentation modes amid tumultuous social and political changes.
