Majority of Xiqu (Cantonese Opera) researchers in Hong Kong focused on the analysis of text and musical context with a lack of effort on Xiqu performance and theatrical interpretation. Research about Cantonese opera’s plays usually concentrate on their relationship with traditional literature, in order to highlight their value of culture and art by highlighting their literary and historical meaning.
With a lack of recognition and study on influence and elements from other plays and performance of the same era, this unavoidably led to overlooking on the side of Xiqu as an public performance have it’s only cultural and spreading characteristics.
Although most study on Tang Di-sheng’s various Xiqu works focused on the “original script” of Ming Qing Chunqi, it was only part of his source for his own script. Beside the “original script” it can be found that a lot of Tang’s scripts have considerable amount of scenes and plots originated from other Xiqu play of different story, and among scenes of some of Tang’s own script they actually shows similar characteristics or performance similarity. Thus, besides comparing the literature and cultural side, study on Xiqu should also focus on their relationship with other type of Chinese Opera performances.
This study use Dinu hua and Zaishi hongmei jì as an example and studies on each chapter about the factors affecting Tang’s creation beside the “original script” including plotting and design of performance, hoping to depict the way Tang used to write his own script, how the social environment affect his script and why script writers after Tang can’t match his success even they claimed to be “following Tang’s creation path”.
