The Backstage of Chinese Opera Theatre

Hong Kong Museum of History

On some traditional Chinese festivals or special occasions,
specially constructed temporary bamboo sheds were setup as Chinese opera theaters.
Although the backstage of the theatre was small and narrow,
it served as the actorsí and actressesí resting area as well as their make-up room.
