In Sichuan opera when I was see it their story is about an opera artist who got his face burned by his opponent who jealous of him.because of the condition he disappeared from his fiancée after his opera master found him and persuaded him to came back he can regain his happiness with his fiancée and learn the art of Changing faces.
The main attraction of this opera is when performers wearing masks changing the masks very fast from from red to white, then from white to black.it is very interesting how they can change 10 or more masks lee than 1 minute
