Abstract

Peony Pavilion scholar Catherine Swatek sat in on the New York rehearsals of Peter Sellars's production, was present at the show's opening in Vienna, and later attended performances in London and Berkeley. With extensive knowledge of the text, the performance tradition, and Sellars's production, Professor Swatek discusses the show vis-รก-vis the language, imagery, and thematic content of Tang Xianzu'sa play.
