Wang Luoyong

Though Wang Luoyong has lived in America for many years and attained huge successes, he never flaunts these. Born in Henan Province, Wang is a typical Chinese man: plain, unyielding, sincere and down-to-earth. And it’s his honesty and stubbornness that impel him to move from Henan to Shanghai, to fly from Shanghai to the USA, and to fly back again to China.
Wang Luoyong, now known as the “Top Chinese Star in Broadway”, used to learn Peking Opera in Shiyan Peking Opera Troupe in 1975 and then learned to play the horn and compose in Wuhan Music Institute later.

After graduation, Wang Luoyong worked as a teaching assistant in Massachusetts College of Art and taught theatrical performance majors. In 1989, went to Boston University in the USA for further study and obtained his master’s degree of arts in the College of Fine Arts there. Then he worked as an associate professor in the University of Wisconsin and instructed theatrical performance majors as well.
