ART & LITERATURE

  

 

 

  Chinese Opera

 

Singapore

The actors in Chinese Opera, known in Thai as ngiw, are -sometimes heavily- covered with make-up called lian pu, in which the colours and patterns represent a certain character, as well as a quality of the individual.

 

In addition, the players dress in colourful  costumes and more often than not they also wear conspicuous headdresses, as seen with these souvenir figurines.
