Students in South Africa treated to a unique art performance

The world-famous traditional Chinese Opera has come to the Mother City, Cape Town.

The ancient art dates back almost 200 years but it remains active on China’s stages today.  Performers assume different roles in the plays and comedies. The PekingOopera or Beijing Opera is a blend of music, dance, and acrobatics.  The event was organized by the Confucius Institute at University of Cape Town.

It hopes to bring more Chinese cultural programs to South Africa in the future.
