Sichuan Opera

This performance was about a man who has been out playing mahjong with other women and who's wife is upset. In order to punish him, she makes him do tricks with fire on his head. Our guide talked about how women in Chengdu have a lot more authority than in other parts of China and usually tell their husbands what to do. They are called "spicy girls" for that.
