Kunqu is the oldest existing form of opera in China. The genre, whose history stretches back six centuries, was recognised as “World Heritage” by UNESCO in 2001. It is characterised by melodious singing accompanied by a transverse fl ute, singers who also dance, graceful ballet, and highly distinctive music. This form of opera is a fundamental part of the training of the actors and singers of the Beijing Opera. Tang Xianzu’s Dream on Dreams presents the four dreams of the 16thcentury
dramatist Tang Xianzu about good manners, feelings, Buddhism, and Taoism.
