The First American Tour of Mei Lan-Fang

China Institute in America, 1930. Original wraps. Wrap edges are bumped, and spine is rather worn, but wraps hold together well and interior is clean. Small indentation on top of first few pages. Faded pencil mark on title page. This is an intact and very rare libretto with essays and a program from the first American tour of legendary Chinese opera singer and actor Mei Lanfang. This tour would have been American audience's first introduction to Mei and, for many, the distinctive non-Western style of Chinese theater. Mei was particularly influential of the work of Bertolt Brecht in Germany. A handsome old program for the collector of theater history. Good. Item #484
