Live: Unveil selected scenes 'Zhe Zi Xi' of traditional Peking Opera repertoires

"Zhe Zi Xi (In Chinese: 折子戏)," a selection of highlighted scenes or acts from a full play, is a form of production in Peking Opera as the full length of some of the plays could run for more than 24 hours. "Zhe Zi Xi" is usually made of selected scenes that are more demanding in performing skills and has a relatively condensed dramatic structure as well as a more completed storyline.
