Xiang Opera artistes

There was still more than 30 minutes before the start of the show. So I went to the court outside the troupe's make-up room to look around. I saw the artistes going in and out of the room in various stages of dress-up and make-up, as if it were some normal thing they do everyday. I find it interesting, so I took some pictures.

The pictures are not clear as I did not use the flash and I did not ask them to stand still for me take their photos.
Unfortunately I did not see Zheng Ya Ling, the lead sheng of the troupe.

I am not familiar with the artistes. I don't know this one.

You can guess what role he played by his face make-up.

Two of them, I think the younger one is Lan Hai Bin, another lead sheng.
