Sichuan Opera





With a long history, Sichuan opera is one of the representatives of Bayu 
culture,having developed many outstanding traditional plays, variable 
melodies, and excellent acting arts.
The five styles of Kun Tune, High Tune, Huqin Tune (Xipi and Erhuang), 
Tan Tune and Deng Tune were once very popular in Sichuan. 
The five styles often shared the stage and gradually coalesced into a 
single technique. The technique was referred to as "Chuanxi" by the end
 of  the Qing Dynasty and renamed "Sichuan Opera" later.
The unique skills like "face-changing", "fire-spitting", and "long-sleeve fluttering" 
in Sichuan Opera are highly original. Together with the expressive motions, 
Sichuan opera is not only loved by Chinese people but also spread over 
the world. For example, the famous play Baishezhuan & Jinshansi is very
 popular at home and abroad.
