A two-part symposium webcast via, "Negotiating Culture" is the second of two programs addressing who gives meaning to a work of art.

The complete production of The Peony Pavilion is a one-in-a-lifetime event. Besides its place in operatic history this production is notable for the controversy that surrounded its presentation last year. Why should a 16th century opera have created such a stir? Possibly because the issues at stake are not limited to China, but resonate throughout the international community.
