Highlights of Beijing stage shows in May

Beijing is getting set to welcome a prolific portfolio of stage performances in May. Now, let’s find out some of the highlights that are in store for music lovers in the capital city.

The National Center for the Performing Arts will be running its version of Puccini’s classic opera "Tosca" from May 12th to the 15th. It will be helmed by internationally famed opera director Gian-Carlo del Monaco. This will be the sixth time that he has directed "Tosca".

Gian-Carlo Del Monaco, Director of NCPA Opera "Tosca", said, "We want to create the most beautiful edition of ’Tosca’ and inject modern vigor into the century-old classic."

Set in Rome in June 1800, "Tosca" is a story about love and hate, politics and conspiracy. The play includes some of Puccini’s best-known lyrical arias, and has inspired memorable performances from many of opera’s leading singers.

Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli has made himself one of the best-loved singers world wide. He is set to return to the Chinese stage next month. The blind tenor debuted in China at Great Hall of the People in 2004.

Jia Ding, Lyricist, said, "Bocelli is the biggest-selling solo artist in the history of classical music. Both music lovers and critics are impressed with his unique voice. It is easy for you to emotionally respond to his singing when listening to his concert."

A new drama, entitled "Queen of Coquetry" is slated to hit the Beijing stage on May 10th. Directed by He Nian, it is a new play that focuses on the romance and career of today’s young Chinese urbanites.
