3 000 BC.
Aside from Chinese ethnic groups, two of the most populous nationalities are Mongolian and Tibetan, with 4 802 400 and 4 593 100 people respectively.
There are 183 minority nationalities in China as of the 1963 census; however, at the time of the census, only 54 of these were officially recognized.
Chinese opera is one of the world’s oldest forms of theater.
This art form was initially only enjoyed by the nobility, but, starting in the 17th Century, it spread to the proletariat
“Chinese opera evolved from folk songs, dances, talking, antimasque, and especially distinctive dialectical music” (3).
The performances are marked by elaborate costume and makeup as well as acrobatics.
