About the Performance
A young woman is like a blooming flower, so is a newborn baby.
She is like a peony blooming in the cold morning. Pink petals open up in the shadow of darkness. After those hard years, now she has become a master of Taiwanese opera. When the stage lights come on, she is standing at the center, respected by people.
She is going to reveal the innermost feelings she has kept to herself since young age. Her life is as dramatic and full of hardships as her plays on the stage. After sixty years, now she is ready to open her heart to the audience.
As a mother to four, she used to confess that "I may not be a good mother, but I am a responsible one". Not every woman is well-prepared for being a mother. For her, motherhood is like an original sin, a shadow she has never able to escape from.
In the darkness, she heard the sound of gongs and drums, and Taiwanese opera became her guiding light. With her small figure, she bravely faced the light that once hurt her. She decided to dedicate her entire life to Taiwanese opera. Now, she is known as the soft-speaking artist and mentor.
She experienced joys and sorrows in Taiwanese opera, but she kept forging her own path from pains in life. She is Liao Chiung-chih, the best kudan and legendary Taiwanese opera master in Taiwan.
