This course is a unique opportunity for students to learn the history, theories, and performance skills of kunqu, the classical opera of China. In the first nine weeks, Professor Lam will lecture on history and theories of kunqu, providing students a broad understanding of the genre, its performance tradition, and contemporary significance. In the last six weeks of the course, Madame Zhang Xunpeng of Shanghai, a National and Representative Successor and Educator of Kunqu, an Intangible Heritage of Chinese Art, will give students singing, dancing, and acting lessons. At the end of the term, students will give a concert of kunqu music and dance with Madame Zhan Xunpeng, and submit reports/analytical essays on their learning experiences.
