Once upon a time, there wasn’t any DTS (Digital Theater System) or Dolby Pro Logic or AC3 equiped sound system theater show, not to mention 100 over inches projected screen, hard stiffened chairs/benches, hot and open air environments, chinese tea served and so on. But you get a live and real action show that not repeatable. Yeah, chinese opera drama it was. There were numerous types of chinese opera with Peking opera the most famous among. You can google on it’s history if you interested to know more.
Various genres of movies, repeatable, comfort cushions, various types digital surround sound systems, >100 inches projected screen, air-conditioned, pop corn, and so many more. There were numerous cinemas for you to choose with GSC the most famous one. Right, those are what you get nowadays.
Chinese opera was the only drama or musical dance they could have in the past. Why was it so interesting about? Because that was the only entertainment they had, so nothing else they could choose to watch beside this. In contrary of that, now we can choose from different cinemas with different genres of movies on show. Just that we don’t have the extra times to watch them all. As times flew, chinese opera evolved to another dimension. It’s audience changed from human to god/ghost. Whenever an event held for god or ghost, you’ll see a stage infront, you’ll know there will be a chinese opera show. Anyway, you won’t be able to see ‘them‘ watching even though it meant for ‘them‘, in fact all you’ll see are human being were watching. Unless you can see ‘them‘, then remember to let me know.
