Research on the Significance and Value of Apprenticeship Reconstruction in Liuqin String Opera
—From Teaching in Art School to Apprenticeship
Abstract: As one of the National Intangible Cultural Heritage, Liuqin String Opera has been carrying out the approach of mentoring to cultivate a lot of outstanding artists, who are highly skilled with unique solo singing, making Liuqin String Opera the primary one in the lower Reaches of Yellow River. However, this traditional approach has been replaced by the centralism teaching in the art school since 1950s. This transformation has brought some vigor to the development of Liuqin String Opera. Meanwhile, there are also some issues and problems. Considering the characteristic of the traditional opera, a comparative analysis has been made in this paper between the two ways of teaching, apprenticeship and centralism teaching, in which the significance and value of apprenticeship has been emphasized as the key to protect the traditional art.
