Highlights of classic Beijing Opera were staged in Jinan Beijing Opera Theater, which stunned the international students from Shandong University. On January 23, more than 20 foreign students paid a visit to Jinan Beijing Opera Theater to take a close look at Beijing Opera, the quintessence of Chinese culture.

Four classic Beijing Opera repertoires were performed. Artists' wonderful performance, gorgeous costumes and exquisite makeup won applause from the audience and amazed the foreigners.

"Anyone want to try these instruments?" the drummer of the band asked after the performance. Several students came up, eager to have a try and show their skills. Eunice, from Uganda, was very active. She picked up the stick and beat the drum, but quite out of order. It is not easy to play the drum in rhyme. The drummer took over the stick and demonstrated how to beat the drum. The foreign students took turns to learn. Having practised for a while, they could drum a rhythm.

Meenoy, from Laos, was attracted by the moon lute. Amazed by the melodious music, she asked the artist to teach her how to play it. Instructed by the artist, she learned a few basic fingering. Her movements and expression implied a touch of grace when played the moon lute.

Through the activity, Jinan Beijing Opera Theater showed the overseas students the original Chinese traditional opera, presenting them a feast of Beijing Opera.

How to attract more people to watch Beijing Opera as well as more young people to learn it is an important subject in the inheritance and development of this art form.

  

Shandong University and Jinan Beijing Opera Theater signed an agreement on the day to jointly establish the international students' Chinese traditional culture center, aiming to advance the promotion and inheritance of traditional culture as well as build a platform for foreign students to get a deep understanding of China.
