About this book

In this study Lei focuses on the notion of 'performing Chinese' in traditional opera in the 'contact zones', where two or more cultures, ethnicities, and/or ideologies meet and clash. This work seeks to create discourse among theatre and performance studies, Asian and Asian American studies, and transnational and diasporic studies.

Reviews

"Comparatively little has been written on Chinese opera, and this is perhaps the first book to look at how that tradition functions in immigrant populations in other geographic areas...Recommended." - CHOICE
