Dataset description

This data consist of 11 productions of The Orphan of Zhao created by practitioners from four countries – China, Nigeria, Korea and Britain – and spans a range of theatrical genres: Chinese regional operas; spoken drama and Chinese opera in the Western style as well as dramas in Korean and in English (works by Ahmadu Bello University in Nigeria and by the Royal Shakespeare Company in Britain). Viewers can find the introduction to each of the productions, including the information about the particular genre of each stage work. There are also still images and clips of videos; some production links include critical reviews. These diverse productions not only retell an ancient story of an orphan in China, but also enlighten us about the intriguing fluidity and continuity of human culture.

这个《赵氏孤儿》资料群包括11部不同的《赵氏孤儿》作品,分别来自四个国家:中国、韩国、尼日利亚和英国。这里既有中国的戏曲、话剧和歌剧作品,也有韩语和英语的作品(尼日利亚贝洛大学戏剧部和英国皇家莎士比亚剧团的演出)。资料群为浏览者提供了每个作品的介绍包括该作品所采用的剧种。每部作品都有照片,有些包括录像片断和评论文章,这些各有特色的作品不仅重新讲述了一个中国孤儿的故事,而且也使我们看到人类文化中引人入胜的流动和延续的特质。
