AllMusic Review by

This is perhaps the only full recording of the highly refined kunqu form of classical Chinese opera, which fell into disfavor in the 19th as being too rarified, and is now rarely performed. This performance of what has been called one of the greatest masterpieces of classical Chinese opera presents the great actress Huan Wen-yi with Taiwan's Lan Ting group, dedicated to reviving the tradition.
