National Theater of China Fusheng


Date: May 17-20 - 7:30 pm

Venue: National Centre for the Performing Arts

Fusheng, who holds expansive knowledge about Confucianism and is employed as a learned scholar in the Qin State, which has just unified China in the ancient time. As time goes on, Confucianism, which has long been admired for so long, has lost its influence. The First Emperor of Qin orders the "burning of books and burial of Confucian scholars." But Fusheng preserves the Confucian masterpiece The Book of History and defends the culture without fear of death, but when he seems to have succeeded, his soul is tortured. Yet as a scholar of Confucianism, he seems duty bound to sacrifice his life for it.
