Chinese opera is "Total Theatre". It is a harmonious combination of music, song, dialogue, drama, literature, visual art, dance, mime, martial art, and acrobatic display. Early forms of Chinese drama are simple, but over time they incorporated various art forms, such as music, song and dance, martial arts, acrobatics, as well as literary art forms to become Chinese opera. Exaggerated paints on opera performer's face which ancient warriors decorated themselves to scare the enemy are used in the opera; each color has a different meaning. They are used to symbolize a character's role, fate, and illustrate the character's emotional state and general character.
