The Taipei Cultural Center, part of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York, has asked Liao to deliver a lecture at an event to promote Taiwanese opera on Aug. 13 and will also screen an award-winning documentary about her life in which she stars.
Liao is widely hailed as Taiwan's best ku dan — a major sorrowful female character in Taiwanese opera — and the finest performer of Eastern operatic arias for her distinguished portrayal of tragic female roles.
