Peking Opera is a specific form of Chinese Opera which combines music, vocal performance, mime, dance and acrobatics. It arose in the late 18th century and became fully developed and recognized by the mid-19th century.The form was extremely popular in the Qing Dynasty court and has come to be regarded as one of the cultural treasures of China.
Originally, acting was an all male pursuit, but the rules were relaxed in the 1870's and now females are usually stars of the show. In this classical Chinese painting a female Peking Opera singer is seen with arms crossed gracefully awaiting her performance.
