In General Discussion
On November 24th, less than 2 days before the first performance of the Guoguang Opera Troupe's traditional Peking Opera show "Ghost Madness" series, artistic director Wang Anqi dropped a shocking bomb on her Facebook - she will leave the Guoguang Opera Troupe's art Director position. In my opinion, there are so many unreasonable things in this resignation statement that anyone with a discerning eye can see that there must be something wrong. First of all, because of Wang Anqi's voice and status in the popular database Guoguang Opera Troupe and even the entire Taiwanese opera community, how could he just use a single post on a personal community platform to end his 30-plus years of work in the Guoguang Opera Troupe? This is one of them. From the comments of many Guoguang actors (both senior and rookie) below, we can see that Guoguang actors are just as surprised by this as other melon eaters in the art circle, and this is the second. Finally, up to now, the Guoguang Opera Troupe has still not issued any official statement on its own official platform (the only one that can be regarded as the troupe's position is the brief reply of the current head Zhang Yuhua to the media inquiries ), and no one knows. Who will replace Wang Anqi and take over the helm of the Guoguang Opera Troupe? Besides, if the artistic director really wants to hand over the baton, at least two years before the official resignation, it is reasonable to perform all the representative works of the former director for one round!
