Adapting China's Great Revenge Tragedy For The RSC Stage
James Fenton: "The Orphan of Zhao
, which I have been adapting for the RSC, survives in various versions, going back to what is no more than the lyrics for a set of arias whose music can only be guessed at. A play with songs, its earliest versions date back to the 13th century; the events it describes date back two millennia before that, between 800BC and 600BC."
