Together, our Wayang Chinese Street Opera collection depicts a Cantonese Opera called “The Great Seal of the Six Kingdoms” (六国大封相).
This Opera is set during the Warring States Period (475-221 B.C.). It tells the story of how the renowned politician, Su Qin, lobbied the six states to adopt the Vertical Alliance strategy and unite against the State of Qin. This Opera is popular during Chinese holidays such as the Spring Festival. In accordance with the season, the costumes are colourful and elaborate.
Our entire Chinese Street Opera set consists of on-stage performers, musicians, backstage performers and a full-scale stage, complete with colourful backdrops (each sold separately).
Wayang, or Chinese Street Opera, is a form of theatrical performance. Chinese immigrants first introduced them in Singapore during the late 19th century. Therefore in the old days, they performed it for both entertainment and at religious festivals to honour deities. Percussion instruments serve as the play’s primary music, and the performance style involves high-pitched singing and a formal way of speaking.
