Description Contents
Since the communist Chinese assumed control of Tibet in 1959, many aspects of Tibetan culture have been threatened. Lhamo, Tibetan opera is one of these. As Chinese troops tour all over the world masquerading as Tibetan opera, it is left to exiled Tibetans in India to preserve the distinctive art form at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts.

Lhamo: Opera from the roof of the world is the first book in English to provide an introduction to this fascinating field. From the history and origins of Lhamo, the book describes opera in Tibet and looks at each aspect of the performance today. Synopsis of nine enchanting opera stories are included.
