Senior Chinese leader calls for revitalization of Peking Opera

A senior leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Tuesday encouraged Peking opera troupes to produce more superior pieces to revitalize that art.

Li Changchun, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, made the remarks after watching the show 'Man Jiang Hong', which told a story of Yue Fei, a hero who fought against invading troops in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279).

The show kicked off a month-long demonstration season of over 40 masterpieces of Peking Opera.

The over 200-year-old Peking Opera, which combines instrumental music, vocal performances, mime, dance and acrobatics, was recognized as an intangible cultural heritage last month by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The Chinese government established a special fund in 2005 to support key troupes around the country to develop new scripts and adapt classic stories.
