Abstract

Chinese Opera has a glorious history. Because of language barriers, discrepancy of drama culture and dramatic performance systems, it is still quite difficult to appreciate Chinese opera in actual cross-cultural overseas context. This paper collects and translates a part of proper nouns of Chinese operatic stage. From three translating methods of proper nouns in Chinese opera based on the SF theory — literal translation, liberal translation and transliteration with notes to transliteration, this paper concludes that we should choose an adaptive translating method of proper nouns in accordance with different functions.
