The Red Boat Opera Troupe (Chinese: 紅船) was a group of Chinese travelling opera singers who toured China in the late 1800s and early 1900s. They were instrumental in forming and leading a popular uprising against the Qing Dynasty, using a derivative style of Kung Fu fighting to defeat government troops.[1][2]
