The ink painting version Chinese Orphan dubbed ‘old plots with ink form’ integrates the adapted Ma Lianliang’s script in 1960 with the classical arias of Yu (Yu Shuyan) School’s The Story of the Orphan. Wang Peiyu is the only laudable performer currently in China for the middle-aged male characters of both Ma’s and Yu’s Chinese Orphan. Inheriting Yu’s aria and Ma’s storyline and performing style, the ink painting edition condenses the duration from three hours and 40 minutes to about two hours, curtailing redundant plots and highlighting classical arias, to adapt to the watching habit of audience nowadays. Melodious traditional aria, simple props of one desk and two chairs silhouetted against the enchanting ink painting landscape, coherent stage shifts by prop men…. All revive the aesthetic effects of stage play during the period of the Republic of China. Aesthetically, the ink painting edition Chinese Orphan spreads out vintage, simple and unconstrained charm.
