Academy of Xinzhou Studies will make its debut at the Festival with two North Road Bangzi Opera classics. China Theatre Plum Blossom Award winner and Representative Bearer of North Road Bangzi Opera as a National Intangible Cultural Heritage Yang Zhongyi will star in Sobering Up after Being Drunk , playing a timid old prime minister set up by the empress to give some drunken advice to the emperor, thus risking his own life. In Dotting the Eye of a Painted Dragon , the young Tang emperor Li Shimin will be played by winner of the Plum Blossom Award and Wenhua Award Cheng Fengying, travelling incognito to visit a talented scholar. Cheng’s delicate performance on the emperor’s ups and downs in emotions would be too good to miss.
