The Yeh Yu Chinese Opera Association from New York performed two Peking Operas— “The White Snakes” and “The King’s Favorite.”  A traditional form that originated in China in the 18th century, Peking Operas were forbidden during the Cultural Revolution. Ovita F. Williams, who wrote about the performance for The Miscellany News, described it as “Colorful, dynamic, wondrous, and eye-opening…You didn’t have to understand the Chinese language to enjoy this opera.”
