Indeed, Peking Opera is old, old enough to cal for rejuvenation. Despite its 200-odd-year history since the debut in Beijing made by four famous opera troupes from east China’s Anhui Province, Peking Opera has been losing its charm and attraction it used to possess, when facing the huge challenge from such modern arts as movies, TV, and, pop songs.
Nevertheless, Peking Opera lovers are still there, and even on the rise. Surprisingly, more and more young people have been becoming regular theatre-goers, especially for Peking Opera.
