Chengdu is the cradle of comedies.Back in theTang Dynasty, it was said that the Shu drama was the best in the world. The Sichuan opera consists of four tones including the high-pitched tone, the Kun tone, the huqin tone and the weak tone in addition to a Sichuan folk lantern drama. Excepting the lantern drama, the four tones were all introduced to Sichuan by theatrical troupes from other provinces from the late Ming Dynasty to the mid Qing Dynasty. The language of the Sichuan opera is lively. It is humorous with a strong atmosphere of life, closely combining vocal accompaniment, gongs and drums and martial arts. The high-pitched tone of the Sichuan opera is the most representative one. There are hundreds of common stage dramas. It integrates singing, acting, speaking and martial
arts, and contains a lot of witty and humorous remarks. The instrumental music is unique, and the stereotyped movements are impressionistic. It is immensely interesting...
Chengdu, the home of Chinese dramas, has long been known for "the Shu drama, the best in the world." The Sichuan opera formed in the Qing Dynasty is an important Chinese local opera. There are many dramas, the language is beautiful and humorous, the
means of expression are abundant, the stereotypical movements are implicit and meaningful, the instrumental music and vocal accompaniment are peculiar, and "face-changing" "fire-spitting" and other stunts are especially unique and make people acclaim it as the peak of perfection. Chengdu
people like playing outdoors. As the great writer Su Dongpo wrote in a poem, "Shu people forget to return when they are playing." Now, the lantern shows and flower shows held in the urban area in every spring are visited by a lot of tourists and bustle with activity; in the suburbs, the Longquan Peach Blossom Show, the Duliangyan Tomb-Sweeping Day Drainage Festival, the Xindu Magnolia Show, the Sweet Osmanthus Flower Show, the Pengzhou Peony Show, the Xinjin Dragon Boat Festival, the Pi County Wangcong Temple Singing Competition, etc. attract crowds of tourists from everywhere. All these folk festivals and shows are not only happy festivals for Chengdu people to play and walk in spring, but also great opportunities for tourists from other places and folklorists to enjoy and collect folk songs.
