Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Farewell My Concubine is a Peking opera. A more literal translation of the Chinese title is The Hegemon-King bids his concubine farewell. The play tells the story of Xiang Yu, the self-styled "Hegemon-King of Western Chu" who battled for the unification of China with Liu Bang, the eventual founder of the Han Dynasty. In the play, Xiang Yu is surrounded by Liu Bang's forces and on the verge of total defeat, so he calls forth his horse and begs it to run away for the sake of its own safety.show more
