Widely regarded as one of the cultural treasures of China Beijing opera has a history which dates back to the year 1790. This special Chinese opera presents a fusion of features from different regions in china. In that time four local opera groups from Anhui Province came to Beijing on a performance tour on behalf of the imperial court. The tour was highly successful and the groups stayed in the city. The artists absorbed the tunes of the Hubei local opera and drew on the best of Kun Qu, Qin Qiang and Bang Zi and other local operas.

The performers wear typical Chinese clothes and colorful makeup reassembling those of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The facial painting symbolizes different characteristics. Yellow and white represent cunning, red stands for uprightness and loyalty, black means valor and wisdom, blue and green indicate the vigorous and enterprising character of rebellious heroes and gold and silver represent mystic or super-natural power.

Depending on the type of personality, each character has always one of fore distinctive names. For instance, "sheng" is the positive male role, "dan" is the positive female role, "jing" is a supporting male role with striking character and "chou" is the clown. It is said that the names were chosen to have opposite meanings to the actual nature of the character. Sheng in Chinese may mean "strange" or "rare", but the chief male role is a well known character. Dan, which means "morning" or "masculine", is contrary to the feminine nature of the characters. Jing means "clean", but in fact the paintings on their faces make the characters look unclean but colorful. And Chou in Chinese sometimes represents the animal "ox", which, in some senses, is "slow and silent" in contrast, the Chou characters are usually quick and talkative.
