Taizhou Luantan Opera


Taizhou Luantan Opera

The Taizhou Luantan Opera gave two performances on October 15th, 2017 at the Arts United Performing Arts Center in Fort Wayne, IN

Grand Performance - Fort Wayne Sister Cities celebrated the 5th Anniversary of our Sister City relationship with Taizhou, China by enjoying the world renowned Taizhou Luantan Opera. The opera company is a group of 25 singers, instrumentalists, dancers and acrobats from Fort Wayne’s Sister City Taizhou, China.

Traditional Chinese Opera is very different from what many here would consider opera. There is dramatic make-up, songs, colorful costumes, dance and acrobatics representing traditional Chinese stories that date back over 400 years to the Ming Dynasty.
