    Background: A PEKING OPERA TROUPE ARE OPENING TOMORROW (THURSDAY) AT THE ALHAMBRA MUSIC HALL IN PARIS. TODAY OUR CAMERAMAN JOINED THE PARIS PRESS TO WATCH THEM REHEARSING THEIR PROGRAMME.

    THERE ARE 90 ARTISTS IN THE CAST. THEY COME FROM TWO TROUPES: THE CENTRAL INSTITUTE OF THE PEKING OPERA; AND THE CENTRAL INSTITUTE OF MODERN OPERA.

    THEIR PROGRAMME CONSISTS OF WORKS FROM THE PEKING OPERA AND THE KOUEN-TCHU ARE TWO OF THE OLDEST FORMS OF CLASSICAL OPERA. THE KOUEN-TCHU DATES BACK TO THE 12TH CENTURY AND IS A STRICT COMBINATION OF SONG, MUSIC, AND MOVEMENT.

    THE CHINESE TROUPE IS TO HAVE A MONTH-LONG SEASON IN PARIS. BUT IT IS NOT THEIR FIRST VISIT TO THE FRENCH CAPITAL - MEMBERS OF THE PEKING OPERA VISITED PARIS IN 1955 AND 1958.
