Chinese Roles of Beijing Opera

A very impressive deck of cards featuring 54 different images from “Chinese Roles of Beijing Opera” published by HCG Poker Productions, 2005. One in a series of packs of playing cards portraying Chinese history and cultural treasures, these cards show the Chinese Peking Opera with its rich repertoire, beautiful singing, superb martial arts skills, wonderful makeup and brightly coloured costumes which, according to one commentator, are more impressive than a military parade. It is certainly preferable for countries to understand each other through theatre and art rather than war.
