(p.311) Epilogue
Chinatown Opera Theater in North America

Nancy Yunhwa Rao

University of Illinois Press

Drawing from the author’s family history, the epilogue discusses how opera culture could permeate different social classes, accompany dislocation of personal root, and be felt in communities near and far. It also traces the impact of Chinatown theaters on the roaring twenties of the United Staete, the use of instruments in jazz, and to the rise of certain branch of American experimental music in the 20th century, as well as the manifestiation in Chinese American cinema and literature.
