The accompanying music, singing and costumes are full of Chinese cultural facts. During the reign of Emperor Qianglong in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), a local opera troupe from Anhui Province came to Beijing and brought its "Hui Tune" (which originated in Anhui Province and was called "Pihuang" opera) to the capital. It soon became prealent. In the course of evolution, it partly drew and adopted repertoire, tune and manner of performance from Kun opera (a local opera from Jiangsu area) and Qin Opera (a local opera from Shaanxi Province) as well as folk tunes, gradually developing into what we now call Beijing Opera Placing emphasis on dancing as well as on singing, it adopted the skills of Chinese martial arts and created its own uniquely stylized, ficitious and strongly rhythmical movements.Singing and reciting show elaborate articulation and phrasing. Systemized in its four categories of singing, acting, reciting and arobatic fighting, Beijing Opera has exerted a strong influence on other local opera.
