Forever Enthralled (Mei Lanfang)

A biographical account of Mei Lanfang, China's greatest opera star.

Back in his younger days, thirteen-year-old Mei Lanfang wanted to follow in his grandather's footsteps to become a male Peking opera performer who specialised in playing female roles. Taking into account the lowly social status of entertainers in Imperial China, his uncle strongly opposed his choice and urged him to quit the profession. He could foresee the trouble lying ahead for a man who acted as a woman on the stage.
