This is really just a quick note, but might be helpful.
In case you previously bookmarked the English site of China National Peking Opera Company, delete
http://www.cnpoc.cn/en/ and update the link to http://www.cnpoc.cn/en_index.asp.
The site made tremendous advancement lately, including a pretty long list of opera synopses, the articles from 2012 are written by someone who definitely can speak English. Hopefully old articles gradually get a face-lift too. Some operas got really good titles, for example the story of Jin Yunu was “translated” as Pay Your Price. Isn’t that brilliant?
Their Who’s Who is clearly in the “under construction” phase, let’s hope the new editor keeps up the good work and updates the profiles of performers, as he/she did with Dong Yuanyuan’s for example.
The pages of the old site are still online though, I don’t know it’s good or bad. I suspect they get removed when everything is rendered into final and internationally acceptable form on the new site.
Anyhow, congratulations to the new webmaster and editors of CNPOC!
