The 27-scene Kunqu opera "The Peony Pavilion" will be performed on three consecutive nights, with nine scenes presented each night. Produced by Taiwanese scholar Kenneth Pai Hsien-yung, the opera is being presented for the second time in Shenzhen since 2006.

"The Peony Pavilion" is a play written by Tang Xianzu during the Ming Dynasty and first performed in 1598.

The performance tradition has focused on the love story between Du Liniang and Liu Mengmei. Du, the 16-year-old daughter of an important official, takes a walk in the garden, where she falls asleep. In Du's dream she encounters a young scholar, identified later in the play as Liu, whom in real life she has never met. Liu's bold advances start off a flaming romance between the two and it flourishes rapidly.
