And they tried to tell you that Wesleyan didn’t have any adapted-Chinese-operas-slash-wet-t-shirt-contests.  Sara Guernsey ’15 proves otherwise:

Come see a beautiful adaptation of the opera by Tang Xianzu 1598, performed in a hybrid of traditional Chinese and Western styles. There’s a pond in the stage, a tree branch hanging from the sky, clouds to sit on, and tea served at the beginning of the show.
