Project Description: Ever since Ching Dynasty, drama performance transmitted from Mainland China was popular on Taiwan. For the past hundred years, all kinds of theatrical performance were played on the stage of this land prosperously. This led to the colorful and abundant Taiwan play world. At that time, the interactions between the Straights were frequent, Taiwan normally invited play groups to perform here, including the most popular Chinese opera ones. Due to there were abundant performance and musical elements that had influence on Taiwan opera. Each opera group absorbed the musical, playing, and staging characteristics to create more attracting performances.
