The Peony Pavilion is one of Chinese Classics written by Tang Xianzu in the Ming Dynasty. It is a romantic masterpiece in the Chinese opera history and it is said to be the Eastern version of Romeo & Juliet. The performance tradition has focused on the love story between Du Liniang and Liu Mengmei.
The USA Pavilion will present a story that radiates powerful core values shared by both the Chinese and American people. The Canada Pavilion building is shaped like a looped ribbon or a large letter “C” (as in “Canada”), which has an open air public space as its centre piece.
