Mei Lanfang
The Art of Beijing Opera

Mei Lanfang (1894-1961) was a legendary Beijing Opera figure whose career began at the age of eight and spanned fifty years until his death. During his lifetime, Mei Lanfang performed over 100 different roles in the traditional Beijing Opera repertoire as a dan, the traditional female impersonator. Mei Lanfang's range and incredible artistry won him a large following, both in China and abroad.
This book is a compilation of the photographs and illustrations from Mei's 1930 U.S. tour. It features stunning photographs from some of Mei's most famous roles and a rare set of illustrations from the scrolls that Mei had commissioned especially for the 1930 U.S. tour. For any lover of Beijing Opera and admirer of Mei Lanfang, this exquisite collector’s item will serve as a must-have reference.
"Mei Lanfang's art undoubtedly transcends the difference between east and west." -R.D. Skinnen
