On Sunday 6 November this year The China National Peking Opera Company will give Australian audiences a rare opportunity to experience the fine art of Peking Opera when they perform the rarely seen masterpiece WARRIOR WOMEN OF YANG at Sydney’s State Theatre.
WARRIOR WOMEN OF YANG blends music, mime, martial arts, song and spectacle and provides an exceptional opportunity to take a cultural adventure into Chinese traditional artistic heritage and experience a visual feast presented on a three-dimensional stage design.
Warrior Women of Yang is a story of grief, courage, patriotism and family loyalty. A cast of over fifty headed by China’s top opera stars Li Shengsu and Yu Kuizhi will mesmerize whilst terrifying you with amazing stage combat and death-defying acrobatics performed by professional martial arts performers whose talents all combine to present a high energy, adrenalin packed show.
“This mix of death-defying acrobatics and ancient Chinese tradition is a breath of fresh air … A MUST SEE” Sunday Express 2015
“They whirl across the stage doing high-speed acrobatic somersaults, to percussive onstage music, that take the breath away. “ The Guardian, UK
“The movement is so precise, so stylised, that it seems like puppetry or animation, and it is completely thrilling. The whole effect is enthralling. I was often genuinely breathless with amazement.” BACHTRACK
