And now, on to the challenge.
I have chosen to enlighten you all with my amazing Chinese opera skillz.
I'm singing a couple little snippets from the third scene of the famous Yueju opera, BUTTERFLY LOVERS.
This is a very short snippet and is in fact two different parts of a scene that I've mashed together for the sake of brevity. I'm supposed to have someone singing another part at one point, so I just hummed it.

And this is only for the VERY interested among you. I found scene three of an actual BUTTERFLY LOVERS performance on Youtube (Whoot!). The part I learned with my teacher was from the beginning through about the six-minute mark. Now you can see how truly bad I am by watching the professionals!
