An outdoor performance of a Taiwanese opera in Danshui, Taipei County. In Taiwanese opera, all roles (including male ones) are traditionally performed by females.
I liked the contrast between the drab background and the bright colours of the stage.

Usually, females perform the mail roles in Taiwanese opera, but definitely not all roles. Sometimes the clown old woman was also performed by a male, to enhance the comedy.
On the Dragon Boat Festival, there will be a Taiwanese epera performed by Ming-Hua-Yuan in Kaohsiung. It is a well-known story related to the festival, and will be performed by more than 280 actors. FYI.
