Shanghai Opera


Shanghai opera, based on the folk songs of the Huangpu River region, is an art form performed by a small bunch of local people. Also known as "Huju" in China, the opera is performed in the Shanghainese dialect.

Shanghai opera performers wear costumes that resemble the street clothing of ordinary people from the pre-communist era. Their makeup is not much more elaborate than that worn by western stage actors, in stark contrast to the heavy and significant grease-paint used in the other Chinese Opera forms.
