Full moon is an auspicious and family reunion symbol in the Chinese Culture.  The Drunken Beauty is on her joyful way to see her husband the Emperor.  She is so proud of being a born beauty, even brighter than the full moon.  When seeing her, all flowers are too shy to bloom, fishes are too shy to swim, and wild geese would fall down from the sky.  This is what was elaborated by DCBBO yesterday in the Beijing Opera Classics, the Drunken Beauty, at George Washington University in observance of the Chinese Mid-Autumn Moon Festival 2018.
