Returning to Sadler’s Wells after a successful run last autumn, what makes Peking Opera so captivating is the
absolute dedication of its cast and crew. Director Kevin Zhang began his
operatic training at 11 years old. He has been honing his craft ever since and
cannot wait for the company’s performances this autumn, adding: 'It’s a very exciting time for Chinese arts and culture
in the UK, as appetite among British audiences continues to flourish. We’re
proud to see the return of the exquisite talent of
the Chinese National Peking Opera Company to London, and it’s an
honour to thrill and inspire audiences with an art form they have rare
opportunity to indulge in.'
With five pairs of free tickets available to members to A River All Red, this is an
excellent opportunity to witness the spectacle, colour, and scale of an ancient
Chinese art form.
Running from 21 - 25 October, these productions are on for a limited time only. Book now to avoid disappointment.
