Voyage To the East

One of the most exciting operas to come from China this year, Voyage to the East is the story of Jianzhen, the Chinese monk credited with spreading Buddhism to Japan during the Tang dynasty. His journey brought him face to face with cannibals, pirates, and feudal warlords. By the time he succeeded in reaching Japan, he had lost his eyesight, but is credited not just with the spread of Buddhism, but also sharing cultural achievements of the Tang Dynasty which laid the groundwork for future exchange between China and Japan.

公元742年(唐天宝元年),唐代高僧鉴真大师应日本国僧人邀请,先后六次东渡,历尽千辛万苦,终于在754年到达日本国。与他同行的人中不仅有懂艺术的、医学的,还有能工巧匠等。他带去了大量书籍文物,辛勤传播着唐朝的文化成就。时至今日,中国扬州大明寺和日本唐招提寺的长明灯,遥相辉映,闪亮着温暖的平和之光。本剧以史实为依据,艺术地再现了这段中日间文化交流的千古佳话。
