About

I live in Beijing and blog about music-related performances in the imperial city and the Middle Kingdom (and occasionally abroad, too).

I am reachable at: fleetingspectator  (at) gmail (dot) com , just in case anyone wants to reach me privately.

    Hello from Canada,

    Beijing Opera is a new interest for me, your blog is fascinating. Thank you for associating the English names of performers with their Chinese spellings — these spellings can be used on the Chinese web sites to find Beijing Opera videos.

    What is Zhang Huoding up to right now? I read something about an expensive picture book, but the Google translations were impossible to understand.

    Best regards,
    Bert

  2. Dear Bert – Zhang Huoding is now a professor at the National Academy of Chinese Theatre Arts. As such, she doesn’t perform that often anymore, and when she does, it’ll be an event anywhere in the country.
