Shadow Puppetry 皮影

Shadow puppet shows originated when an emperor in ancient China missed his wife very much. His servants decided to reproduce a small model of his wife and created a shadow puppet show for the emperor. Shadow puppet shows continue to be performed to this day with interesting stories that are enjoyed by all.

古时一位皇帝因妻子去世,思念成疾。于是大臣用布制成他妻子的形象,放在幕布后面,请皇帝观看,这就是皮影的起源。皮影戏是用灯光照射人物剪影、配合音乐唱腔来表演生动有趣的故事。
