In the history of Chengdu, there was bullfight opera in the Qin and Han dynasties and Canjun opera in the Three Kingdoms period. In the Tang and Song dynasties, “Shu opera was the most popular artistic form in the country”. In the early Qing Dynasty, various forms of operas from the south and the north were introduced to Sichuan, which helped to shape Sichuan opera in the late Qing Dynasty and culminated in the Republic of China. At that time, brilliant stars came out in succession, putting on the stage unforgettable tragicomedies of human life.
