Precious photos of "Four Great Dan Actors" of Peking Opera

The heyday of Peking Opera is perhaps when "Four Great Dan Actors" reigned the stage. The four actors were Mei Lanfang, Shang Xiaoyun (1899-1976), Cheng Yanqiu (1904-1958) and Xun Huisheng (1900-1968). They were all male actors but played female roles on the stage.
