The Prince of Peking Opera – Ghaffar Pourazar

I meet this amazing artist, Ghaffar Pourazar, last year. He is an Iranian born, British raised former computer animator turned master of Beijing Opera. He is the first and only ‘Westerner’ to train in the art and has subsequently created the first bilingual version of the opera, Monkey King, as well as adapting Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the Beijing opera stage. The links are various, but the first is to the International Centre for Beijing Opera which Ghaffar founded.
