Chinese Kun Qu Opera enjoys a history of over 600 years. Its singing and acting are extremely elegant and poetic.

The Lioness' Roar is one of the traditional theatrical pieces of Kun Qu. It tells the story of a jealous and ill-tempered wife, Mrs Liu, and her husband Chen Jichang. Chen, never able to take a concubine or even enjoy some happy moments with other women, seeks help up and down, just to find all the guys henpecked, including the judge in a court and the god in a shrine.

His final rescue comes from the King of Hell, who puts Liu in the hell and tortures her. Liu changes her behavior after she is released from the hell and the couple has since lived a happy life.
