One of the oldest pieces of Chinese theater, "The Orphan of Zhao" is the story of an orphaned child who discovers the truth behind his origins after a violent coup. Described as the Chinese "Hamlet," this tale was the first Chinese play to be translated in the West and has inspired numerous operas, plays and movies.
