Li Yugang, known for his onstage cross-dressing performances in China, is preparing for his first tour of the United States and Europe with his new show, Feng Hua Xue Yue, or Ageless Love.

The show is a mix of dancing, singing, Kunqu Opera and Peking Opera, and will have him playing four classical female roles — Wang Zhaojun, Du Liniang, Yuji and Yang Guifei.

It will start by the end of the year.

Li's performances will be accompanied by ancient Chinese stringed instruments such as guqin and guzheng and xiao (a flute).

"I want to present Chinese theatrical aesthetics to Western audiences. It's a big mission but I believe I could make it," says Li, whose earlier performances have been at venues such as Sydney Opera House and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
