Editor's Recommendation
The plot of Qin Xianglian is relatively simple.Chen Shimei,a married man with children,wins the first place in the highest imperial examination and is hence married to the princess,the emperor’s sister.When his wife Qin Xianglian finds him,he refuses to recognize her and their children.He even sends an assassin to kill them but the assassin kills himself instead,due to an awakening of conscience.Qin Xianglian sues him for betrayal and attempted murder and wins the case on the verdict of Bao Zheng,an official famous for uprightness and integrity.The drama ends with the execution of Chen Shimei.
 
The opera is hence devoted to Qin Xianglian,a success story in the Beijing opera that has stood the test of time.It aims at helping the readers gain some understanding ofboth Qin Xianglian as a Beiiing opera and the Beijingopera as aform of art.
