Judith Zeitlin is writing a book on musical entertainment in the social, material, and literary culture of sixteenth- and seventeenth­-century China, which centered on the twin fashions for opera and courtesans. The book is structured around three key components: the singing voice, the musical text, and the musical instrument.
