Description

About

The Children of the Beijing Opera

One minute on stage, ten years of training

In granting us the rare privilege of entry, the Beijing Opera School offers access to the age-old art form of traditional Chinese opera.

Based on a typical day for students and their teachers, the film lets us follow them through dawn-to-dusk activities that include acrobatics, classes in singing, music and dance, makeup sessions, schoolwork, rehearsals and performances.

This is total immersion in an establishment where discipline is, in many respects, that of a military academy.
