A rare North American tour by the Zheng Ming Long （Famous Dragon) Taiwanese Opera Troupe (正明龍歌劇團) of Chiayi, Taiwan has just begun!
I only have a little bit of information on the tour at the moment, but here are the dates and cities. Tour stops include Farmington Hills (MI), Indianapolis, Aurora (IL), Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Marietta (GA), Cary (NC), Centereach (NY), New York (NY), Albany (NY), and Markham (Ontario, Canada).
I am under the impression that most of the performances will be free, particularly the ones being held outdoors, but I really can’t say for sure. Anybody who is planning on coming to a specific performance can get in touch with me, and I will try to verify the information with the tour and their local sponsors.
