Yun from Shen Fu's autobiography Six Chapters of a Floating Life, was recently brought to life in a Kunqu Opera.

One of the loveliest women in Chinese literature, Yun in Shen Fu's autobiography Six Chapters of a Floating Life, recently had her life story told in a Kunqu Opera play by Shanghai Grand Theatre.

The first production of SGT, Six Chapters of a Floating Life was premiered in the theater on July 13. A major project supported by the Shanghai Cultural Development Foundation, the play is the first production solely by SGT.

In May when the production was announced and box-office sales kicked off, the tickets sold out for the premiere night within 28 hours.

The Shanghai-based Xinmin Evening News praised the play to be "a highly aesthetic new Kunqu Opera production, deeply rooted in the tradition, without losing relevance to the contemporary view of beauty".
