Chinese Opera’s Characteristics

VI.  Conclusion
     Through the analysis of stage setting, costumes, make-up, and motions, a conclusion can be drawn that Chinese Opera is a drama form played on a stage full of convention and symbolism.  Players' performing skills make up for the simplicity of plots.  To the audience who have specialized knowledge, the performers' singing ability is all they pay attention to.
