    A Lesson in Sichaun Opera to Celebrate the Year of the Dog

    On February 21, we welcome in the Year of the Dog with a performance of China’s Sichuan opera led by award-winning performer Madam Chen Qiaoru and guest artists from Chengdu. The performance is copresented with the UCLA Confucius Institute. In advance of the program, we spoke to Susan Pertel Jain, the executive director of the UCLA Confucius Institute, to learn more about Chinese opera and what to expect from next week's performance.
