Description

Beijing opera or Peking opera is a kind of Chinese opera which arose in the

mid-19th century. It is widely regarded as one of the cultural treasures of China.

Performers wear extensive makeup; their whole faces are painted in bright colors.

Colorful masks, inspired from ancient ceremonies and religious symbols, are done

by the actors. The color of each character's face is significant as it represents

the character's personality and fate.

Understanding the colors will greatly enhance your enjoyment of the opera as it is

an intricate part of the story. Red faces represent righteousness; black denotes

gallantry and heroism; blue and green signify brawn (not necessarily with brains!)

or those held in high regard by commoners; yellow and white are negative colors,

often meaning cunning or a tendency to be suspicious; gold denotes deities and

silver is reserved for demons or bad spirits.The make-up style indicates if a

character is good or evil.
