Critics Notebook: The Right to Perform, the Right to Compose; Loss of Peony and Players
With much of Tibetan culture put at risk by actions of the Chinese Government, it may seem petty and impertinent to fret about the fate of Chinese opera; even more, about one particular corner of it. But Chinese opera, which has long been the central manifestation of the performing arts in China, deftly combining music, drama, poetry, dance, design and acrobatics, is waning. And Kunqu opera, the revered style that began in Kunshan, near Shanghai, in the 14th century and gave birth to so many later varieties, including the dominant Peking opera, appears to be dying. Really dying, not just wallowing in confusion, as so much of Western classical music is doing. That sober reality was hard to credit for a recent visitor to Shanghai, seeing the remarkable talent, energy, imagination and love being lavished on rehearsals for the ground-breaking production of the Kunqu classic The Peony Pavilion that was to have formed the crown jewel of the Lincoln Center Festival, which opens this evening. As Chen Shi-Zheng, the gifted American director now at the center of a storm, put the mostly young performers of the Shanghai Kunqu Opera Company through their paces, the gorgeous costumes arrived bit by bit, handmade in classic fashion by elderly seamstresses in nearby Suzhou, the site of a Kunqu museum. Despite the dinginess of the surroundings, on the fifth floor of a municipal building in the old French quarter of Shanghai, the process seemed one of growth and vitality.. James R Oestreich deplores Shanghai cultural authorities decision to deny Kunqu Opera Company permission to travel to United States to present The Peony Pavilion at Lincoln Center Festival; The Peony Pavilion, written by Tang Xianzu in 1598, is considered one of great masterpieces of Chinese literature; production by Chen Shi-Zheng, gifted American director at center of storm, was derailed by Ma Bomin, director of Shanghai Culture Bureau; Ma contends Chens production is unworthy to represent Kunqu tradition to the world; photos (L)

FREE MARKET GAINS
The Communist Party announced a sweeping change in the makeup of its highest executive body today, promoting several enthusiasts of free markets to the seven-member committee that is supposed to rule China for at least the next five years. The reshaping of the all-powerful Politburo Standing Committee is an important victory for those trying to tug the party toward a new world of free markets -- for goods, though not ideas. The shake-up, which included the retirement of two leading hard-liners, sends a clear signal that the party intends to focus its energies not on ideology but on economic restructuring. A Future Power Struggle The selection of the seven men as members of the new Standing Committee prepares the battleground for the huge power struggle expected after the death of Deng Xiaoping, Chinas 88-year-old paramount leader. The seven men will have far more weight than any one else in determining the direction of China after Mr. Deng dies. While Mr. Deng holds no official position, he clearly was the prime force in picking the new Standing Committee. But as his health deteriorates, he is unlikely to be able to influence it in the way he has in the past. Mr. Deng emerged today to congratulate the new leaders, in his first televised appearance in eight months. He seemed very frail and his facial expression barely changed. Still, he managed to walk about and wave to the cheering delegates of the just-ended Communist Party congress. Helped by His Daughter The congress was a great success, Mr. Deng said, according to the official New China News Agency. I hope all people will continue to work hard. Mr. Deng is known to be virtually deaf and to have difficulty articulating his words, and from the Chinese television footage it appeared that his daughter Deng Rong, who held his arm the entire time, had to repeat his remarks on some occasions so others could understand him. She also spoke into his ear to tell him what people were saying to him. While Mr. Deng is said to be more alert in the mornings, it is still not entirely clear how a man in such a physical state can exert such a grip over national affairs. One partial answer to this puzzle is that he focuses only on setting broad policy guidelines and on choosing personnel at the highest level. Even so, some Chinese wonder if those around Mr. Deng may be manipulating him or else manipulating the country by sometimes speaking in his name. It is impossible to know how the new leaders will act once they are freed of Mr. Dengs supervision. But so far there is no sign that they favor a political liberalization to go along with the economic changes that have opened large segments of the Chinese economy to market forces. Jiang Zemin, the Communist Party General Secretary, remains the head of the Standing Committee. As a stereo system played Descendants of the Dragon, a ballad that ironically was written by a pro-democracy campaigner expelled from China two years ago, Mr. Jiang strode into a large room in the Great Hall of the People and introduced the other members of the new Standing Committee to several hundred foreign reporters. A Different Atmosphere Five years ago, the newly chosen Standing Committee walked around the room, bantering with journalists, but this time the atmosphere was entirely different. As soon as they had been introduced, the members hurried out of the room, some looking nervously over their shoulders at the mobs of journalists shouting questions at them. One of the most important appointments today was the elevation to the Standing Committee of Zhu Rongji, a former Shanghai Mayor who is sometimes labeled Chinas Gorbachev because of his aggressive efforts to restructure the economy. Mr. Zhu, who is 64, has risen very rapidly and is the leading candidate to replace Prime Minister Li Peng if Mr. Li is edged out when his term expires next spring. Now the reformers finally have some advocates in the highest ranks, a Western diplomat said. Its unrealistic to think that they will lead to a Western parliamentary system. But there probably will be dramatic changes in the economy, and that will lead to political changes even if they dont want that to happen. The youngest of the new Standing Committee members is Hu Jintao, the 49-year-old party secretary in Tibet. Mr. Hu has played a central role in crushing dissent in Tibet, where troops have fired machine guns on protesting Buddhist monks and nuns, and yet he is generally considered a reformer. In part this is because Mr. Hu endorsed the repression for practical rather than ideological reasons. Moreover, he was a protege of Hu Yaobang, a former Communist Party leader who sought far-reaching change. On the other hand, Hu Jintao was also promoted early in his career by Song Ping, a hard-liner, and so the accuracy of the labels is open to question. The other new addition to the Standing Committee is Gen. Liu Huaqing, a 76-year-old army veteran who has tried to make the military forces professional and modern rather like those in the West. Three other party leaders have been retained from the previous Standing Committee: Mr. Li, the Prime Minister; Qiao Shi, who is in charge of internal security, and Li Ruihuan, who looks after ideology and propaganda. Most Chinese regard Li Peng as a hard-liner and Li Ruihuan as a reformer, with Mr. Jiang and Mr. Qiao somewhere in between. Those dropped from the Standing Committee were Yao Yilin, the head of the central planning apparatus, and Mr. Song, the hard-liner who has been in charge of party organization. In addition to the seven chosen to serve on the Standing Committee, 13 others were chosen regular members of the Politburo. The full Politburo meets about once a month, with many other party officials present as well. The Standing Committee, on the other hand, normally meets at least once a week, with much less ceremony. It is by far the more important body. Aside from the seven serving on the Standing Committee, 11 officials were elevated to the full Politburo for the first time: Ding Guangen, Mr. Dengs bridge partner; Li Lanqing, the Trade Minister; Qian Qichen, the Foreign Minister; Yang Baibing, a general; Wu Bangguo, the party leader in Shanghai; Zou Jiahua, a Deputy Prime Minister; Chen Xitong, the Mayor of Beijing; Jiang Chunyun, the party leader in Shandong Province; Wei Jianxing, the Minister of Supervision; Xie Fei, the party leader in Guangdong Province, and Tan Shaowen, the party leader in the city of Tianjin. Two others who had served on the previous Politburo were retained on the present one: Tian Jiyun, who oversees agriculture, and Li Tieying, the Education Minister. There is a sense in Beijing that other changes -- in policies and personnel -- are likely to follow soon. At Peoples Daily, for instance, an official spokeswoman paused when she was asked if the hard-line publisher, Gao Di, was still holding his job. Well, she said uncertainly, I have no information that hes no longer serving as publisher.
