Beijing Opera is a form of traditional Chinese theater which combines singing, reciting, performing, acrobatics acting, and instrumental accompanying, along with rich face make-up, costume, and stage setting. I applied the pitch material drawn from the fixed instrumental accompanying pattern, the rhythmic material and tone color from percussion ensemble performance, to compose the theme and its development. By contrasting the legato phrases and staccato phrases, altering the rhythm, and employing various dynamics, I attempted to depict the contrast between majestic male roles and delicate female roles.
