Traditional Chinese Opera
Opera is a form of Chinese traditional Drama. It is
incorporated by various factors like literature, music, dance, fine art,
martial art, acrobatics and performing arts etc. Though it was derived from
three different art forms, namely folk music and dance, hip-hop and antimasque.
But the most prominent feature that distinguishes itself from different operas
is reflected firstly by its music singing voiced from different tune systems.
The music voice is created by collecting music in other areas on the basis of
the language, folk songs and folk music in local areas. The characters in the
play are acted by the male characters, female characters, “painted face”
characters, middle-aged male characters and clown etc with different painted
faces. In the performance, it attaches much importance to the programmed action
inspired and created from life as well as the simulative treatment for space.
And the art of singing, reading, acting and fighting etc and performance for
transporting and excellent dancing with high technology content has constituted
the complete opera art system which is distinguished from other operas.
