Internationally renowned Shanghai Jingju Theatre Company transforms Shakespeare’s Hamlet into one of China’s most impressive forms of traditional art, setting the story in the fictitious ancient Chinese state of the Red City. Here, as in Shakespeare’s classic, the prince becomes disillusioned after discovering his uncle has killed his father and seduced his mother. The stage presentation of this Peking Opera strictly follows the rules of Chinese dramatic aesthetics, famous for its succinct and meaningful depiction.
