In anticipation of A&L’s upcoming performance of the famed Chinese opera Peony Pavilion, Dr. Dongshin Chang, visiting lecturer at UCSB’s department of dramatic art, will deliver a lecture on the visual beauty of the Kun Opera — its makeup, headdresses, costumes, and dance movements — through slides and film clips from the production. The free event goes down Sunday, September 24 at 2 p.m., at Mary Craig Auditorium.
