  Yao Wenyuan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yao Wenyuan (Chinese: 姚文元; pinyin: Yáo Wényuán) (1931 23 December 2005) was a Chinese writer and propaganda official and a member of the Gang of Four in the People's Republic of China.
Yao claimed it was a coded attack on Mao for dismissing in 1959 then-minister of defense Peng Dehuai, a critic of Mao’s disastrous Great Leap Forward.
Yao Wenyuan was an ideal candidate for the criticism for such an opera because of his consistent socialist background.

 Telegraph | News | Yao Wenyuan
Yao Wenyuan, who has died aged 74, was the last surviving member of the "Gang of Four", which purged moderate elements from the Chinese Communist Party during the chaotic last years of the Cultural Revolution; they were arrested within weeks of Chairman Mao's death in 1976.
At her suggestion Yao retired to a sanatorium for the summer, on the pretence that he was ill, to produce a rather stale piece of dramatic criticism; but it was also a 10,000-word diatribe against a "poisonous weed" of literature.
Yao Wenyuan was born in 1931 and became a member of the policy research institute at the Shanghai party committee.

 Yao Wenyuan | Obituaries | Guardian Unlimited
Yao Wenyuan, the last surviving member of the Gang of Four, who has died aged 74, was a literary polemicist whose pen, under Mao Zedong's patronage, launched the Chinese Cultural Revolution (1966-76).
Although Yao was often opportunistic in his polemics, their radical views were shared by many other young intellectuals who believed, with Mao, that the pace of China's "transition to socialism" was too slow.
In 1934 Yao Pengzi was jailed by the Chinese government, during the first civil war between nationalists and communists, and forced to renounce his allegiance to the party, but he remained active in leftwing literary circles throughout China's war against Japan (1937-45).

 The "textbook problem" - Ye Yonglie on Cultural Revolution education
Yao Wenyuan's death was neither premature nor late - he "selected" a most sensitive moment: 10 November 2005, shortly before Yao Wenyuan died of his illness, was the 40th anniversary of the publication of Yao's Criticism of the new historical drama "Hai Rui Dismissed from Office" in Wenhui Bao.
Shortly after Yao Wenyuan died was 2006 - the 40th anniversary memorial of the Cultural Revolution and the 30th anniversary celebration of the smashing of the Gang of Four.
Perhaps it is because Yao Wenyuan's death was at such a sensitive time that the Xinhua News Agency chose to issue the news at 4 pm on 6 January 2006.

 On Yao Wenyuan’s Death
Yao Wenyuan, one of the leading cadres of the Communist Party of China during the times of the Cultural Revolution, died in December.
Thus, Yao Wenyuan’s intervention of 1975 made its effect upon our protest, and our decided rejection of the ”gang of four” was, among other things, grounded in this reception and the subsequent support for these organizations, engineered by several Chinese organs.
The question has at least to be raised if the representatives of the so-called “gang of four”, to which Yao Wenyuan belonged, basing themselves on the informations coming into the Peoples’ Republic of China, were able to overlook the complete extent of the way they were acting.
