This is another old post brought forward. The first 3 comments are old ones.
There are 4 excerpts in this video ...
The clip I'm posting here is Free The Son, an excerpt from the famous opera The Magic Lantern, 宝莲灯. The two leading artistes were 白駒荣 and 郎筠玉.
Two brothers had a fight with the arrogant son of the evil 'tai shi'. The son died. The Minister demanded that the father sent the brothers over for punishment. After much deliberations with his wife, they decided to send the younger son and free the older one.
The girl acting the older brother 沉香 is 小木兰.
