Beating the Dragon Robe: A Traditional Peking Opera

Released in 1962, this record is a remarkable example of the aural component of the traditional Chinese art form known as Peking Opera or Beijing Opera. This opera, set in the midst of the Sung Dynasty, tells the story of a queen who is unjustly demonized and left for dead. In a true testament to the skill and power of the performers, the high level of emotional intensity is not in the least diminished for those that do not understand Chinese. Even with themes and emotions being easily accessible to the listener, liner notes include a synopsis of the play as well as the full script.



这张发行于1962年的专辑,是对著名的中国传统艺术形式京剧中听觉元素的完美诠释。《打龙袍》以宋仁宗时期为历史背景,讲述了仁宗之母--李后遭受不公、惨遭遗弃的故事。剧中高强度的情感释放不仅对演员的功力是一场考验,即便对于不晓中文的观众也是一场高强度的情感体验。本剧主题鲜明,情感丰富,专辑内页含有剧目大纲及完整的剧本。
