Actors perform the immersive theater version of the Kunqu Opera "Six Chapters of a Floating Life" at Canglang Pavilion in Suzhou, east China's Jiangsu Province, May 29, 2019. The immersive theater version of the Kunqu Opera "Six Chapters of a Floating Life", an autobiographical writing by Shen Fu, a writer and painter during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), kicked off in the Canglang Pavilion on Wednesday. The show depicts a married couple whose loving relationship stands out from the patriarchal norms of the time. Suzhou native Shen Fu (1763-1825) and his wife Chen Yun used to live along the street near Canglang Pavilion. Built in the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000, Canglang Pavilion is the oldest among Suzhou's existing gardens. [Xinhua/Li Xiang]
