Characters[edit]

The Wiktionary-linking of the Chinese characters allows readers to follow the links to see the etymology of these characters, and, thus, the name of the opera form, providing an article that is maximally encyclopedic. It's much better to discuss properly first, rather than reverting again and again prior to engaging in such discussion; this is part of editing Wikipedia in a collegial manner, which is one of the most important things to which we should aspire, following the wisdom of our founders.

Suggestion of renaming this article to "Shaoxing Opera"[edit]

There is another kind of Chinese Opera also called "Yueju", same with this kind in pronounciation. However, if written in Chinese characters, this article is talking about "越剧", which is also called "Shaoxing Opera". It is popular in Zhejiang and Shanghai. Another type is "粤剧", which is also called "Cantonese Opera". It is popular in Guangdong. As the chinese character "越" and "粤" are same in pronounciation ("Yue"), there may be confuse for English readers who is not familiar with Chinese Language. Considering the "Cantonese Opera" was used as the name of the article about it, I suggest this article should be renamed to "Shaoxing Opera" Hoffnung2008 (talk) 12:42, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
