|Wu Opera Performs on CCTV New Year Opera Party|
At 8 o’clock in the evening on January 1, the 2021 New Year Opera Party, hosted by the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the PRC, was broadcast live on CCTV Channel 1 and Channel 4. Zhejiang Wu Opera Art Academy (Zhejiang Wu Opera Troupe) gave a wonderful performance at the party. This has been the fifth consecutive year that Zhejiang Wu Opera Troupe has attended the CCTV New Year Opera Party, the highest-level stage for Chinese opera.
At this year’s party, Zhejiang Wu Opera Troupe, together with the National Peking Opera Theater and the Shandong Peking Opera Theater, performed the Peking Opera “Raid on the White Tiger Regiment”, reproducing the years of the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea.
In addition to the New Year Opera Party, another two large-scale evening parties of CCTV have issued invitations to Zhejiang Wu Opera Troup. (Translated by Shen Yingying, edited by Mariam Ayad)
