About Us

Kunqu stands as the oldest extant genre of Chinese theatre and has had far-reaching influences on Chinese literature, stage performance, music, and dance. In 2001, UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) proclaimed kunqu, along with 18 other forms of cultural genres, as a masterpiece of “the oral and intangible heritage of humanity.”

Founded in 1988 and incorporated in 1989, the Kunqu Society is a non-profit corporation with the mission of studying, preserving, and promoting kunqu.
