The Peony Pavilion is one of the most representative operas in Chinese opera, especially Kun Opera. Kun Opera and Guqin are two of the earliest Chinese arts that are listed on the World Intangible Cultural Heritage List. The dialogue between Guqin and Kun Opera complements each other well. This book consists of four parts: In the first part, ten articles show wonderful and unique interpretations about the Peony Pavilion in terms of the characters, feelings, thoughts, and so on. In the second part, 13 pieces of Guqin scores are collected. The classical arias in the Peony Pavilion are edited with the fingering of Guqin, which allows both playing and singing. The third part includes ten paintings drawn by Mr. Yu Shui, a representative painter of the new literati school. The fourth part includes two CDs on music appreciation and cultural narration.
