Beijing Opera

Beijing opera consists of singing, recital, gestures and fighting actions. The song-and-dance routine, the dazzling costumes, the stylized performance and colorful facial make-up were a huge draw.

 

Stylized action

Beijing opera recreates settings and props through the use of mimed gestures and actions. The stage has no real door, carriage, boat,  mountain or horse; hence the actors will mime the action of opening the door, entering through the door, getting on a carriage, rowing a boat, climbing up a mountain and riding a horse.

脸(lián) 谱(pǔ) (various kinds of facial designs)

The meaning behind the colours used in facial make-up:

Red--loyalty and courage

Yellow--cruelty and savagery Golden yellow--gods and demons

White--evil

Blue--carelessness and impetuousness

Black--righteousness

Green--chivalry
