The Traditions Of The Stage

Mou Yuandi is a repository of knowledge about Chinese opera traditions. Traditions that are in danger of dying out. He stands as one of the only guardians against the encroaching wave of modernity.


While he may be reserved in real life, once he puts on his makeup, he comes alive. He is here to inspire another generation of young men in the art of playing female roles, so that tradition can continue on.
