The Eternal Palace




Qian Yi stars in several productions of The Eternal Palace, including at the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., at Columbia University's Miller Theatre and at Symphony Space in New York. The Eternal Palace, a Kun opera composed of 50 episodes and well-known throughout Asia, takes us back to the courtly intrigues of Tang dynasty China with the fateful story of Emperor Xuanzong (685-762) and his ill-fated love for the most famous femme fatale in Chinese history, Yang Guifei, played by Qian Yi. The auspicious day the two vowed their eternal love under the moon, July 7th, is still celebrated as Valentine's Day in the Far East.
