Peking, Cantonese and Sichuan Operas are the performance arts which celebrate the Chinese legends. The Peking and Cantonese Operas are recognized as part of the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity with Sichuan being the National Treasure. Combining music, literature, martial arts, dance and juggling, these iconic art forms reflect the traditions of Chinese aesthetics which embody the rich heritage of Chinese theatre. Different vernacular cultures have given birth to over 300 sub-genres, and despite war, uprisings and changes of the modern age, many of these sub-genres continue to exist.
