Shanghai Cultural Week is staging a variety of cultural events covering film, TV, traditional Chinese opera and ping pong in San Francisco.

The week, which opened on January 31, runs until February 6.

The new 3D Peking Opera film “Cao Cao and Yang Xiu” was screened for local audiences, and Peking Opera artist Shang Changrong, who plays the leading role, talked with fans about the charm of traditional Chinese theater on a live radio program.

A batch of acclaimed documentary films and cultural programs are being exhibited on America’s ICITI TV, including documentary series “21st-Century Maritime Silk Road” and traditional Chinese opera program “Bravo China.”

At the Peninsula Table Tennis Club, teenagers from China and the United States also attended a ping pong exchange event where they played the game and forged new friendships.
