Yueju Opera with its tender and feminine feeling is well suited to convey the romantic soul of the literary masterpiece. "A Dream of Red Mansions" is by far the most popular show in Yue opera. It focuses on a love story of the decline of feudal families. Two crossed lovers are destined by fate to be apart.

The story begins with the mother-less child, Lin Daiyu - whose beauty and intelligence surpasses all - moving into her maternal grandmother's family in the capital. There, the child meets numerous relatives, one of whom is Jia Baoyu, her mother's nephew, and the heir of the family. Baoyu was borne with a jade tablet and so, is treated like a fragile egg, and is spoiled by his grandmother. He often spends his time with his female cousins and maids instead of being in his studies. One of the cousins he hangs around with is Xue Baochai. As the story goes on, Baoyu and Daiyu eventually fall in love with each other, but Daiyu is not very well-liked by the family, and instead, the family members favor Baochai.

This disc version is live record from the 2001 Hong Kong performance of Shanghai Yueju Opera House. You can expect nothing less than powerful symphonic music, highly elaborate sets, fashionable costumes and an unforgettable performance by a stellar cast (Zhao Zhigang plays Jia Baoyu, who is praised the "prince of Yueju opera"; Fang Yafen plays Lin Daiyu, a popular actress who has won the Plum Blossom Award of China Drama Performance). It is a love story like no other. Be prepared to be moved to tears by the love and sorrow of Lin Daiyu and Jia Baoyu when you watch "Daiyu Burying Flowers," "Daiyu Burning her Poetry Manuscripts, " and "Jia Baoyu Mourning Lin Daiyu's Death". This beautiful Yueju opera rendition of the Chinese classic is not to be missed.
