Heroines of the Yang Family
Starring Dong Yuanyuan
The opera narrates one of the most exciting episodes of heroism and patriotism demonstrated by women warriors in the history of China. During the Song Dynasty (960 AD - 1280 AD), the 100 year old Se Tai Jun, matriarch of the Yang family received news of the death of her grandson Yang Zhong Bao on her birthday. Yang Zhong Bao was killed in an ambush by the barbarian tribe from the state of Shi Xia whilst on a reconnaissance mission. Together with her two granddaughters and nine other widows whose husbands had sacrificed their lives for their country, Se Tai Jun led an army to battle. The twelve women warriors, despite their age, eventually killed the king of the barbarian tribe and won the battle.
