    Synopsis:
    Kunqu, also known as Kunju, Kun opera, or Kunqu Opera, is one of the oldest extant forms of Chinese opera. It evolved from what was known as the Kunshan melody, and dominated Chinese theatre from the 16th to the 18th centuries. The style originated in the Wu cultural area. It is listed as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO since 2001.
     
    Blossoms on a Spring Moonlit Night is a story about love in a afterlife. This Kun Opera is performed by Shanghai Grand Theatre in Wu dialect. 
     
    公元706年(唐代神龙二年),张若虚扬州观灯之时,偶见少女辛夷,为之神魂颠倒,未及倾诉,却被鬼卒错拘而亡。他魂堕幽冥,辗转力争,思返阳世,竟又得知辛夷与自己并无姻缘之分。张若虚历经爱慕痴怨、行游阴阳,以短暂渺小的人生,直面茫茫无垠的时空。在修行得道的鬼仙曹娥的帮助下,诗人重生再返明月桥头,人世盛衰刹那,红颜已成白发,唯江月恒长。《春江花月夜》的歌吟喷涌而出。
     
    该剧由上海大剧院、上海张军昆曲艺术中心联合多家院团机构倾力打造,幕后团队包括云门舞集的老班底及台湾地区的资深业者。于2015年6月在上海大剧院首演,连演3场,场场爆满,深受好评,2016年2月又赴台北两厅院演出。此次重登上海大剧院,张军与其他梨园名家将再度为观众带来这曲荡气回肠的《春江花月夜》。
