Abstract
It is well known that Zaju has undergone tremendous changes in many aspects in the middle period of Ming Dynasty due to the effect of Southern Opera and Chuanqi, and gradually was assimilated into Kunqu and Chuanqi. Similarly, Chuanqi was assimilated into Zaju in later period due to the effect of Zaju. They tend to be the same in many aspects, so it is difficult to distinguish. This article tries to study their similarities from their system (including four aspects, scale of script, use of tune system, arrangement and use of gong mode and work division of role), and to distinguish their differences from complicacy of internal structure and items of their roles.
