Ma-in-law had a starring role on Yunnan TV yesterday, when they aired a Beijing Opera, filmed in Kunming some ten years ago, in which she played the role of "hard-done-by mother" (a role she was born to play!). It made Ma's day to shepherd us all into her bedroom and show us her acting and singing skills. It certainly showed me a different side to her - a past life I was aware of, but had found it hard to imagine. Mind you, not being a huge Beijing Opera fan myself, the acting looked very wooden to me and the singing sounded like a cat being strangled ...just as it should be, I'm assured!
