Shadows Puppets is first recorded in “Han Shu” in the Han Dynasty (about 100 B.C.): Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty was extremely sad after his beloved wife died, so the minister made the image of his wife with cotton and silk, and installed the wooden poles as hands and feet, then after placing the curtain, the minister light the candle and invited Emperor Wu to enjoy, so as to alleviate his feelings of missing, which was recorded in “Han Shu” and is considered as the earliest source of Shadow Puppets.
Beijing Opera originated in the period of Emperor Qianlong of Qing Dynasty (in about 1790) when local opera teams from all over mainland China gathered in Beijing to celebrate Qianlong’s birthday, with its heyday of a drama stage being set up every dozens of steps with different accents from Xihua Gate to Gaoliang Bridge outside Xizhi Gate. Beijing Opera is mainly finally formed by the communication and fusion of four famous Hui Combo originally in the South and drama teams from all over the country.
