On the History of Kunqu in Center Wu
WU Xin-let (Department of the Chinese Language and Literature, Nanjing University, Nanjing ２１００９３, China)
As the crystallization of Wu Culture, Kunqu spread throughout the country, soon after the improvement by Wei Liang-fu in the Ming Dynasty. But all along, Suzhou Kunqu is thought as the orthodox genre, because the situation is that singers all over the country consider the Wu as their Mecca. In terms of theatrical composition and performing, the Suzhou genre and theatrical troupe in the middle of the Wu area are the best. In particular, “the Kunqu Rendezvous during the Mid-Autumn Festival”, held in Huqiu, demonstrates the solid plebeian foundation that combines the professional and the amateur in the development of Kunqu.
