Authored by Gao Ming (fl. 1340s), Pipaji (琵琶记) is a centuries-old masterpiece of Chinese drama/opera that is an allegory of Chinese filial piety, loyalty, sacrifice and gendered rights and responsibilities. Featuring many dramatic moments performed with flowing songs and elegant acting-dancing, the Lute has been continuously performed and negotiated in China. Recently, new versions of the story have been staged as a performance-discourse of 21st century Chinese morals and life-styles. The version to be presented in Ann Arbor premiered in Suzhou in 2018.
