Chinese New Year

Charles B. Wang Center Theatre
2016 begins the “Year of the Monkey” on the traditional Chinese lunar calendar.
Lunar New Year is a major event all across Asia. In China, it is traditionally celebrated from New Year’s Eve until the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival one of the longest holidays on the calendar.
This year the Confucius Institute at Stony Brook University will be holding their much anticipated New Year Performance and Celebration on Saturday, February 6 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. Some highlights of the 2016 celebration will include professional Lion Dancers, acrobats, traditional Peking Opera performers, magic and much more.
The performance will be followed by refreshments.
