An Evening of Traditional East Asian Vocal Arts
East Asian civilizations have cultivated three branches of vocal arts that have no equivalent anywhere else in the world—Kunqu opera (China), Noh (Japan), and P’Ansori (Korea). Among the great achievements of the East Asian performing arts, they have been designated as national cultural treasures in their home countries and as the world’s “intangible heritages” by UNESCO.
With a selection of the most canonical compositions delivered by top vocalists, Swarthmore audiences can experience all three of these arts seamlessly merged in one evening.
