It is assumed that singers who perform Peking Opera were always well regarded, even idolized. That is far from the truth. In the early 20th Century, singers were held in low esteem. Cheng Yanqiu began to study singing primarily for the stipend it provided; to help his poor family. Out of necessity, one of China’s greatest Dan performers was discovered. He transformed Peking Opera, introducing the rhythm of literary language, as well as fighting for the dignity of the performers. When Japan occupied of vast sections of China during World War II, he refused to sing, choosing instead to work as a simple farmer.
