CIUM proudly presents a grand performance of The Lute: Cai Bojie, a Filial Son and a Loyal Official (琵琶记:蔡伯喈) by the Suzhou Kunqu Opera Theater of Jiangsu Province on April 13, 2019 at the Michigan Theater.

Authored by Gao Ming (fl. 1340s), Pipaji (琵琶记) is a centuries-old masterpiece of Chinese drama/opera that is an allegory of Chinese filial piety, loyalty, sacrifice and gendered rights and responsibilities. Featuring many dramatic moments performed with flowing songs and elegant acting-dancing, the Lute has been continuously performed and negotiated in China. Recently, new versions of the story have been staged as a performance-discourse of 21st century Chinese morals and life-styles. The version to be presented in Ann Arbor premiered in Suzhou in 2018.
