Mao Shanyu, director of the Shanghai Huju Opera Troupe and one of the most famous Huju Opera artists, has opened her first Douyin account to promote the city’s regional opera which dates back to the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
“I’ve never been Internet savvy and it is quite rare for Huju to be performed online,” Mao said. “But the epidemic forced us to consider how to promote the traditional art when people cannot meet with each other.”
Mao, 58, performed part of her award-winning opera “Daughter of Dunhuang” on Douyin in May. The debut show along with 19 livestreaming broadcasts hosted by the troupe on Douyin has attracted over 280,000 online views.
