Notes & Reviews:
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 student and their teachers, the film follows them through dawn-to-dusk activities that include acrobatics, classes in singing, music and dance, makeup sessions, schoolwork, rehearsals and performances. It is total immersion in an establishment where discipline is, in many respects, that of a military academy.
