Documentary series turns to Peking Opera 

Shooting of the episodes on Peking Opera mastros has just begun. The series will mainly follow the art careers of four master performers: Mei Lanfang, Shang Xiaoyun, Cheng Yanqiu and Xun Huisheng. Their stories account for twelve of the series' one-hundred 30-minute episodes.

A joint production of China Central Television and Central Newsreel Studio, the series also covers literature, drama, music, painting, and calligraphy, and examines the lives of forty-two 20th-Century masters across these disciplines. Broadcasting has already begun on more than 20 TV stations in China.
