Life of Meng Xiaodong

Hot 5488 views. 2017-10-22 12:12

Meng Xiaodong, who was famous for her excellent skills of playing Peking Opera, created lots of glories and had a lifetime of frustrations as well. She acknowledged Yu Shuyan as her master on her way to learn Peking Opera.Additionally, she made big successes in the Peking Opera filed, thus being honored as queen.

When it comes to talk about this legendary woman, we always call to mind Mei Lanfang, who was also exceedingly outstanding at that time. Their love story is talked by variety of people even today. I hold the belief that the name of Mei Lanfang is popular among Chinese and he is regarded to be the symbol of China's performing art. Nevertheless, although they had a few happy days after getting married. Their marriage finally came to end because of quite a few things. To begin with, Mei hid the truth that he and Meng had got married, which broke Meng's heart. Worse still, Mei Lanfang's mother passed away in 1930, after she died, Meng Xiaodong came to Mei's home for the first time to express condolences to his mother. What she didn't expect is that she was stopped by Mei's official wife, and Mei also persuaded her to leave. As a result, she exasperatingly broke up with Mei Lanfang.

In 1949, she moved to Hong Kong several years after her divorce, following Du Yuesheng who took care of her during her tough times. She was moved by Du and married him at last. Unfortunately, they just stayed together for one year after their marriage, for Du died a year later.

 Meng Xiaodong lived in Taiwan after since, and she passed away in Taiwan in 1977. At that time, she was 70 years old and she only loved two men throughout her life.

It's okay. There are a number of great women that we don't know, and when we were born, they had passed away. But their spirits are immortal.
