Last week, the Confucius Institute at the University of Michigan presented a formal lecture about Kunqu Opera by Professor Zhou Qin of Suzhou University, Jiangsu, China.
On Monday, Jan. 24 at 4 p.m., that conversation continues with a Kunqu roundtable discussion and demonstration by Professor Zhou Qin at the Michigan League, Room 4. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about this classic art form and try singing kunqu themselves.
The Michigan League is located at 911 N. University Ave., Ann Arbor. Light refreshments will be served.
