Hugh Jackman is not the only one doing a new take on Jean Valjean. Les Misérables has been turned into a Peking opera and posted online.
This version of the Victor Hugo classic was written by students at the National Academy of Chinese Theatre Arts in 2006. If Mulan can become a Disney classic, there is no reason that Les Mis cannot become a Peking opera favorite. But what’s next? The Peking opera version of Hamlet already made its debut at the Edinburgh International Festival. @笑语嫣嫣 tweeted on Sina Weibo, “I think we can expect to see the Peking opera version of Pirates of the Caribbeans.”
