The renowned Chinese Henan Yu Opera No. 2 Troupe brings their stunning rendition of Cheng Ying Rescues the Orphan to the American stage. The story follows the life of Cheng Ying, an imperial physician who rescues a noble, orphan child and the tragic events surrounding both of their families and pasts. Filled with heart break, self-sacrifice and revenge, Cheng Ying Rescues the Orphan, has survived through the ages with numerous tellings and re-imaginings. (For full synopsis click here.) Now, this classic tale has once again been brought to life as a Yu Opera on the Broadway stage in New York’s Studio 54 Theatre, as well as at beautiful Warner Grand Theatre in Los Angeles. Some free street parking after 6 pm.

Led by Li Shujian, a nationally ranked First-Level performing artist, Henan Yu Opera No.2 Troupe has won numerous national and international awards. For more information regarding this opera, the actors, and production please visit our website (click here).

    This was an outstanding experience!!! The theatrical performance was nothing less than superb! Beautiful emotion, dance, acrobatics and writing. I only wish I could've stood and applauded like I wanted to from the front row. And yes, the tickets literally placed me and my wife in the front row. I was so surprised that I had to check with the Will Call folks a second time to be sure I wasn't reading the ticket marker wrong. Our hosts were so very kind and accommodating. The venue was nostalgic and the local restaurants nearby were quaint and comforting. Thank you for a beautiful evening!
