Chengdu - Changing Faces Opera Show

We saw Sichuan Opera Show – had much more humor and folklore than Beijing Opera – but some similarities as well. There was a solo on the Erhu (Two stringed – bowed instrument) that captured audience.
We also witnessed the changing faces opera performance. Even when performer came out into audience, it was difficult to comprehend how the changes were accomplished so quickly. There was even a stick puppet that the performer was able to demonstrate the face-changing performance.
