Beijing Opera - "Huai'an Prefecture"
Cai Tianhua with a white flowered three-tile face plays a role in "Huai'an Prefecture." Cai is a bandit disguised as the chief priest of the North Pole Taoist Temple in Huai'an Prefecture. Learning that Magistrate Shi Shilun has arrived in the prefecture, he goes to the prefecture office and steals the magistrate's seal, hiding it in the temple. Law officer Huang Tianba looks for it everywhere in vain. Finally, He Renjie, son of Huang's sworn brother, finds out where the seal is. He steals it back and together with Huang and others captures Cai Tianhua.Back to Beijing Performer's List - Page 1
