  Chinese Opera

 

China

An open-air performance of Chinese Opera in Tongli, China. In Thailand, this art form is known as ngiw.

 

Whereas in China, performances can be seen in many different places, in Thailand only larger cities may have a permanent theatre, whilst more remote towns and villages usually have to wait for a touring troupe to pass by.
