Artist of Ningbo Pinghua, Representative Inheritor of Zhejiang Intangible Culture Heritage, Member of Chinese Ballad Singers Association

张先生今年90虚岁,自18岁登台至今,已有70多年的宁波评话表演生涯。如今他依然活跃在评话舞台上,多年的表演生涯让他拥有了丰富的舞台表演经验和精湛的舞台表演技艺,人称“评话泰斗”。擅长的书目是祖传的《水浒》《岳飞传》《杨家将》《隋唐演义》《宁波王瑞伯》等,最新改编作品《寒窑赋》。
张先生登台无数,为人称奇的一点是,他的宁波评话“可长可短”,同样一折戏,他可以根据观众的要求说上两场或者说上半个月,这次他将挑战自己——在18分钟内,出演曲艺生涯里最短的一折戏。

Zhang is around 90 this year. Making his debut at the age of 18, Zhang has worked for more than seven decades as a Pinghua artist. He is also nicknamed “The mogul of Pinghua” for his rich performing experiences and exquisite performing skills. His best works include Water Margin, The Legend of Yue Fei, The Yang’s Saga and Romance of the Sui and Tang Dynasties, Wang Ruibo, all of which are of Chinese classics. He has also adapted Poem for Shabby Dwellings.
What interests people the most is that Mr.Zhang can change the length of his performance flexibly to satisfy different needs of audiences. He can narrate a story either in two scenes or more than half a month. This time on the stage of TEDxNingbo, he will challenge himself to perform in 18 minutes, the shortest performance in his entire career.
