After a six-year hiatus, the China National Peking Opera Co returned to the Hong Kong Arts Festival with performances from Feb 24 to Friday.

Led by top Peking Opera artists Yu Kuizhi and Li Shengsu, the company showcased the beauty and artistry of the 200-year-old art form with classic pieces, such as The Cosmos Sword, Reconciliation between the General and the Prime Minister, and Escorting Su San to Trial.

The Cosmos Sword, created and premiered by the famed Peking Opera master Mei Langfang (1894-1961), is considered as one of the most famous and classic works of Mei.
