Chinese Opera

McGuffey students recently attended a performance of Jing-Ju Opera presented by the National Taiwan College of Performing Arts. Jing-Ju Opera, combines music, singing, mime, dance, and acrobatics. Jing-Ju Opera costumes are graceful, with handcrafted embroidery. The makeup is rich in color, depicting different characters with remarkable facial painting.

After the performance, our students had a chance to talk with the performers and ask questions about their craft.

Although Oxford is a small town, our proximity to Miami University exposes our students to a wide variety of cultures and experiences. Special thanks to Howard Blanning for including us in the opera this year!
