Watching Chinese operas is an enthralling experience. Besides the colourful and shimmering costumes, dazzling headdress and
ornaments, there are beauty and gracefulness in movements and gestures, poetic phrases and heart-rending melodious songs.
Moreover, most opera stories are based on Chinese history and famous Chinese classics. There are great moral values
to be learnt from them such as loyalty, filial piety, patroitism and faithfulness.
