Chinese opera star Ling Ke (凌柯) and the members of the Tianjin Peking Opera Company will perform a variety of world-famous Peking Opera highlights in their Chicago premiere. Among the inspired opera highlights are Wu Song Kills the Tiger (武松打虎), A Dragon Flirts with a Phoenix (游龙戏凤), and The Ghost of the Black Pot (乌盆记). These highlights will feature the characteristic artistry and charm that has made Ling Ke one of the finest young male performers in China today, as well as traditional Chinese instrumentalists, performers specializing in comic, martial, and dramatic roles, and dazzling costumes.
