Kunqu Opera has long been listed by UNESCO as the first batch of masterpieces of human oral and intangible cultural heritage. The Kunqu Dictionary is elegant and elegant, with delicate performances, and is known as the ancestor of a hundred operas.
Xixi Wetland and Kunqu Opera have deep roots. Hong Sheng, the author of Kunqu's classic masterpiece "Long Sheng Dian", lives in Hongxi Garden of Xixi Wetland. In the traditional Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, the China Wetland Museum and the Chinese Academy of Fine Arts launched the "Peony Pavilion Dream" Kunqu Opera performance, selecting classic classics from the most representative Kunqu opera "Peony Pavilion".
"Peony Pavilion" is famous for its literary dictionary. Bin Bai Rao is organically interesting, and the lyrics use both the turbulence of Beiqu and the vicissitudes of Nanci. Ming Lu Tiancheng called it "thrilling and clever, it's always new, it's really ancient!"
Tang Xianzu said in the play "Inscription": "As Du Li Niang, can be described as the ears of lovers. Love is unknown, and goes deep. The living can die, the dead can live. The life cannot die with death, but die Those who are not resurrected are not affectionate. "
"Peony Pavilion" directly puts "love" as the basis of creation, and intentionally opposes "love" and "reason". Tang Xianzu said: "The first cloud must have nothing, and there must be evil in order to know what is wrong." (The Inscription of The Peony Pavilion) This "love" is not limited to the love between men and women. Although it contains the love story of returning the soul, it deeply reflects the voice of the times when the society as a whole required change. The theme of "Peony Pavilion" is not simply love. Du Li Niang didn't just return to life for Liu Sheng. What she didn't consciously presented was the whole society's free expectations and longing for a new spring era
