Comrade! Why in Beijing opera are woman's roles traditionally played by men?
I don't know. Most probably a remnant of the reactionary and patriarchal social structure.
No. It's because only a man knows how a woman is supposed to act.

M.Butterfly was originally written for theater and I was quite intriqued when I saw the movie advertisment, I wanted to know how the story was going to be conveyed because I had a role in a production of M. Butterfly, which had been a memorable and an ego-boosting event (As I was only 15). I do not find that the characters were ambiguous, they were clear as night and day both in theater and in the movie.My prefernce goes to the theater production. And i disagree that M.butterfly is a story of love and loss, it was about a man who dreamed of the perfect woman and when that perfect "woman" came he was enchanted, he knew the truth all along but refuses to face up to it because he did not want to ruin HIS perception of HIS butterfly (him as the strong dominant western man and the "woman" he loves as the delicate oriental "lotus blossom")
