The Romance of the Western Chamber

- Part II-

Zhang Sheng Sends a Letter by Way of Hung Niang


There was once a fair lady, whom to see was never to forget.
Not to see her for a single day was to drive one to distraction.
The phoenix flies up and down, seeking everywhere his mate.
Alas! The fair lady is not by the eastern wall!
I play my lute to express my love;
When will you consent to suit and relieve me from my anxiety?


In anticipation of our theatrical presentations of Yueju and Kwun Opera in August 2011, this is the second scene of a graphical arrangement of The Romance of the Western Chamber, a classical story of love and yearning from Yuan Dynasty China that has been known as both a literary favorite and a popular Chinese Opera for centuries.  Subsequent scenes will be delivered by electronic mail.
