Professor Pai Hsien-yung Kenneth, Distinguished Professor-at-Large of CUHK, delivered two public lectures on Kunqu Opera, a traditional form of Chinese performing arts, at the University on 27th and 29th November 2018. Professor Pai explained in the lectures how he introduced Kunqu and the cultural significance behind to different universities in the Greater China and North America. He also shared his experience in producing the youthful rendition of The Peony Pavilion and The Story of Jade Hairpin, and his mission of rejuvenating the Chinese classic performing arts in order to reach out to the younger generation.
