A close shot of the actors in the Yue Opera 'Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai' , the first color picture made in China , year 1953. This one was taken this April when I was in Ningbo.
I'd like to say the Yue-opera was previously all female performances, that is to say, if you play the role of a male, you have to be a bareheaded is the girl(on the left side) in this photo, Sometimes they need to wear hats when walking on the road.

I saw your photo on the portal and thought, "Oh, great opera shot!", and it is! Beautiful. I don't understand the comment in parenthesis. Please explain.

I was talking about the atlanta dailyphoto..

Well, I love the man's costume more,haha, but that was actually a girl
