This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel and Adventure Photos
A group of traveling Chinese Opera singers came to town. They set up a temporary theater under a bridge with bamboo sticks. They slept under the stage and put on their makeup and costumes in a tiny area behind the stage. This group performs all over China, traveling from town to town, staying perhaps a week in each place, providing traditional entertainment that would otherwise be lost to television and the Internet.
