The most famous, excellent, and classic Kunqu opera play was performed by two masters Mei Lanfang and Yu Zhengfei in 1940s and 1950s.

You Yuan Jing Meng

The Kunqu Opera classic was adapted from the Chinese ancient play Peony Pavilion. The title You Yuan Jing Meng can be translated as Wandering in the Garden, Waking from a Dream, also Wildest Dream of the Hero.

Written by the most gifted playwright of the Ming Dynasty Tang Xianzu (1550-1616),  the "Peony Pavilion" tells the story of a young Chinese lady's chastened love in an extremely conservative society.

Du Liniang, a young lady closely supervised by her parents, fell in love with a young scholar, Liu Mengmei, whom she had only met once in a dream. Failing to find him in reality and struggling to keep the secret love from her parents, she died from pinning for her ethereal object of desire.

Even in death, she never gave up her love. After defeating conspiracies of the judges in the underworld, who planned to have her as concubine, her ghost found Liu and showed love to him in his dream. Liu dug open her tomb and brought her back to life and the two finally married after these twists and turns.

"The story was a legend of courage and love - courage despising rigid morals and love overcoming the gap between life and death," Bai Xianyong, a contemporary Kunqu opera writer, says.
