4 Shaoxing Opera, the Interpretation of Romantic Love Stories As a relatively new local Chinese opera, Shaoxing Opera is popular in the southern regions of the Yangtze River. Shaoxing Opera was originated in Shaoxing region of northeastern Zhejiang Province, which belonged to the Yue State in ancient times, thus it was popularly known as Yue Opera or Yueju. With a history of 800 years, Shaoxing Opera was derived from a kind of story-singing. At first, it was performed with a small drum and hardwood clappers for rhythm. Later, choral and orchestral accompaniment was added. It drew some musical elements from other operas and subsequently formed its own characteristics. Singing is a dominant part of Shaoxing Opera, thus it is noted for the lyricism of the melodies. The tunes are sweet and beautiful while the performance is vivid and full of local flavor. As the opera has grown, its basis in reality and everyday life as well as the use of colloquial language has remained strong. Originally Shaoxing opera was only performed by males and then changed to all female performances. Gradually male and females work together. The texts of Shaoxing opera are based on romantic love stories, while acrobatics or fighting scenes are not included. In Shaoxing opera, stage properties and light effects are used and the costumes imitate the light-colored clothes, fashionable at the beginning of this century in China. Peacock Flying to the Southeast is Kongque Dongnan Fei in Chinese. This play is adapted from a Han folk song of the same time. In the late Han dynasty, Jiao Zhongqing, an official, and his wife, Liu Lanzhi, are deeply in love with each other. But Jiao's mother refuses to accept her daughter-in-law and sets a situation in which he reluctantly rejects his wife. The two promise never to remarry. Resolved not to betray Zhongqing, Lanzhi drowns herself in a river. When Zhongqing learns of this, he hangs himself. ". Continue

12 Monkey King Continue Sun Wukong also known as the Monkey King, is a main character in the classical Chinese epic novel Journey to the West written by Wu Cheng'en. In the novel, he is a monkey born from a stone who acquires supernatural powers through Taoist practices. After rebelling against heaven and being imprisoned under a mountain by the Buddha, he later accompanies the monk Xuanzang on a journey to retrieve Buddhist sutras from India. Sun Wukong possesses an immense amount of strength; he is able to lift his 13,500 jīn (8,100 kg or 17,881 lbs) staff with ease. He is also superbly fast, able to travel 108,000 li (54,000 kilometers or 33,554 mi) in one somersault. Sun knows 72 transformations, which allows him to transform into various animals and objects; he has trouble, however, transforming into other people, because he is unable to complete the transformation of his tail. He is a skilled fighter, capable of holding his own against the best generals of heaven. Each of his hairs possesses magical properties, and is capable of transforming either into a clone of the Monkey King himself, or various weapons, animals, and other objects. He also knows spells that can command wind, part water, conjure protective circles against demons, and freeze humans, demons, and gods alike.[1] One of the most enduring Chinese literary characters, Sun Wukong has a varied background and colorful cultural history. For example, Sun Wukong's is considered by some American, Chinese, and Indian scholars to be influenced by both the Hindu deity Hanuman from the Ramayana and elements of Chinese folklore.
