China in the Classics – The Art of War
This episode of "China in the Classics" features "The Art of War," the earliest book on military strategy in estence anywhere in the world. The episode cleverly integrates the ideology of the book into stories of its author Sun Wu. It emphasizes his thoughts, such as "the importance of war," "caution in war," and "kee a country at peace and an army intact."
The book, which consists of appromately 6,000 Chinese characters in 13 chapters, structured classical military theory. Sun Wu pioneered the military philosophy of ancient China and thus enjoys a reputation as the "ancestor of military strategies."
The play is performed by actors including Wu Zhenyu and Wu Yue and is based on the main storyline of Sun Wu's life. Performed on a multi-dimensional immersive stage, the show presents the play through a dialogue between "contemporary reader" Sa Beining and "ancient author" Sun Wu. This dialogue takes place across thousands of years in time and space, with Sun Wu traveling to a modern classroom.
Sun Tzu’s teachings and ideologies really deserve to be read and researched, as they’re still useful nowadays
A marvelous stage dr that combining both SKILLS & TECHNOLOGY!!
The storyline was truly brilliant and well scripted...
Teach about SunTze history in ONE hour...
Enjoyed every second of the drtisation. Deep history never before told to the world.
I am studying Chinese as my major and already very excited to read this masterpiece in it's original language.
The Art of War by Sun Tzu is the best book ever written on how to fight and win a war.
Can’t believe they had Francis Ng to play Sun Tzu. Was his Mandarin dubbed? Great series nonetheless. I have read the book Sun Tzu Art of War. Great knowledge and I employ it at work wherever applicable.
The series are of vital importance for all to see the true Chinese history and culture! I watch them with my children so they know the way of the path of a virtuous person! Thank you CGTN!
China is popularizing all important classics through very innovative time-weaving drtizations, and very emotionally-charged performances. Chinese Renaissance is subtly happening, many more masters will surface to guide us when the time is ripe.
