Notes: Peking or Beijing opera is a traditional form of Chinese theater.  It not only involves singing, but also mime, dance and acrobatics.  It arose as an art form in the late 18th century, and was fully developed as an art form by the mid 19th century.  In recent years, audience numbers have declined, which has led to some reforms such as performing new and original plays.
