"If not for my parents' returning soon, I would see you off ten miles to the pavilion. From now on, we'll no longer create poems while strolling, no longer sit together to write essays. Blame it all on the orders of parents and the good offices of the matchmaker."
Audience member said, "Cui is good! I watched her performance four years ago. She has kept the good momentum, not declining a bit. She's excellent!
"Her appearance is beautiful, her singing is graceful. Judged by overall skills, she can be called a pillar of Sichuan Opera. We like her, and hope she performs more on stage, especially historical dramas."
Cui Guangli was born in the northeastern province of Jilin, one of five daughters. The family moved to Sichuan when she was a child.
She has liked singing and dancing since childhood, and is gifted with a sweet voice. But a career in Sichuan Opera came by chance.
When Guangli was twelve, she accompanied her friend to audition for a local Sichuan Opera troupe. But it was Guangli who was accepted.
Guangli was soon absorbed by Sichuan Opera for its delicious melodies and sophisticated performance.
She's never stopped studying. And with her innate talent, she continues to stand out among her peers.
Over her thirty-year career, Cui has brought many heroines to life.
