Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy

A Modern Revolutionary Peking Opera

Revised collectively by the ‘Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy’ Group of the Peking Opera Troup of Shanghai (July 1970 Script)



‘Revolutionary culture is a powerful revolutionary weapon for the broad masses of the people. It prepares the ground ideologically before the revolution comes and is an important, indeed essential, fighting front in the general revolutionary front during the revolution.’

- Mao Tsetung

Reproduced above: front cover of the published script, complete with songs and production, plus Scene One, ‘Advancing in Victory’ – wishing a very happy Christmas indeed to all my readers.
