Lady Mu Guiying Takes Command


2014 年是京剧大师梅兰芳先生诞辰120 周年。

在中华传统文化中,农历纪元60 年为“一甲子”,120 周年是中华农历纪元的两个周期,谓之“双甲子”。 为纪念这位把毕生精力奉献给京昆艺术的传承与革新的一代宗师,也为更好地推动当今京昆艺术的发展, 由梅派艺术掌门人、梅兰芳大师之子梅葆玖提议,北京京剧院院长李恩杰策划,举办《双甲之约 —— 纪 念梅兰芳大师诞辰120 周年梅派经典剧目展演活动》。

活动将由梅葆玖先生挂帅,集合当今部分梅派传人,精选多部梅派经典剧目,沿着梅兰芳大师足迹,重走 梅兰芳大师巡演之路。

活动于2013 年6 月30 日在北京启动。在一年多的时间里分别在中国部分城市以及香港、台湾等地和美国、 日本、俄罗斯等国家举行巡演,并将于2014 年10 月21 日在北京举行隆重的纪念活动。
