Beijing Opera was born in the 55th year (1790) of the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), when four big Huiban opera troupes entered Beijing and began to adopt elements of the Kunqu, Yiyang, Hanju and Luantan opera forms already popular in capital's playdom at the time. More than half a century later, the troupes combined and integrated stories and methods from the various popular opera styles they encountered, eventually resulting in form of Beijing Opera.


Beijing Opera costumes are called Xingtou 行头 or, more popularly, Xifu in Chinese. The origins of Beijing Opera costumes can be traced back to the mid-14th century, when operatic precursors first began experimenting with large ornate articles of clothing
