The Ac­tion Star

China Scenic - - Lens - Photo/ Wang Huap­ing

Ev­ery time when Chi­nese opera is men­tioned, Pek­ing Opera is the first thing came to mind for most peo­ple. How­ever, few of them are aware that its an­ces­tor orig­i­nated from the ru­ral area of the south — the Wu Opera, which plays an im­por­tant part of the ru­ral res­i­dents’ life of Zhe­jiang. Per­form­ers in the photo are play­ing the Leg­end of the white Snake. To them, the applause of the au­di­ence is their big­gest mo­ti­va­tion. Such dra­matic and com­plex move­ments on the stage can be found in many scenes of each piece of Wu Opera.
