What are the visual performance elements of Peking Opera?

The most common stylization method in Beijing opera is roundness. Every motion and pose is carefully manipulated to avoid sharp angles and straight lines. A character looking upon an object above them will sweep their eyes in a circular motion from low to high before landing on the object.

What is the timbre of Peking opera?

Jinghu timbre

Its mellow and rich sound creates perfect harmony with a high-pitched and bright Jinghu timbre that takes root in the heart and mind. Thus, a contrast between the timbre and range is produced, enriching the sound quality.
