Different from previous performances, in the performance of “Jiang Sister” (2021 version), almost all of the chorus, backing vocals, and side vocals that were originally behind the scenes were presented on the stage and presented to the audience. They became a visual image. As part of the dramatic scene, their singing and performance have become the “emotional background” of the main characters and even the whole play.
Second, the new aesthetic style. One of the highlights of “Jiang Sister” (2021 version) is the scene treatment of chorus by the chief director Wang Xiaoying, which brings a different overall aesthetic style from the past, thus forming a kind of “poetic image”. This “poetic image” is mainly displayed through various aspects such as set design, multimedia projection, chorus singing and performance, which makes the whole drama full of poetic temperament.
3. New character portrayal. In this re-arrangement, the actors in their performances, whether it is lines, singing, movements, positions, try to meet the aesthetic needs of contemporary audiences, try to avoid stereotyped characterization, and strive to break the audience’s solid impression of the characters. Actors, especially the “Jiang Sister” actor, are more natural, smoother, and closer to the audience in the new character understanding and new singing processing. The spirit of Jiang Jie has influenced and inspired generations of people. The classic national opera “Jiang Jie” will surely forge generations of young actors to participate in the concentration.
