TOP REVIEWS FROM THE BEAUTY OF KUNQU OPERA
nice lecture and great presentation with detailed Introduction
Great Course. Went and saw the Jade Hairpin in D.C. the day after I completed this course. It was a nice desert now able to understand and witness what the professor's had described.
Beautiful lectures, especially the demonstrations. The subtitles are well scripted; I'm very thankful for that.
There are lots of very nice guest lecturers who are expert performers of Kunqu Opera. Very beneficial and enjoyable.
