About this product
- DescriptionIn a fit of jealousy, Xiao Yanqiu, star of The Moon Opera , disfigures her understudy with boiling water. Spurned by the troupe, she turns to teaching. Twenty years later, The Moon Opera is restaged, under the patronage of a rich local factory boss who insists that Xiao Yanqiu return to the role of Chang'e. So she does, this time believing she is the immortal moon goddess. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Peking Opera, this devastating portrait shows the extent to which a desperate woman will embrace an exalted image of herself in an effort to flee earthly concerns.
