Thesis summary: In Feb 1995, on request by enthusiasts, 'Xiao Xi Yuan' Hand Puppet Show troupe leader XU Wang produced a series of "Romance of Three Kingdom". For certain reason, the series was never shown to the public and has been kept in storage until 2005 when 'National Center for Traditional Arts' acquired the distribution rights and made into DVD for sale. Since then, this "Romance of Three Kingdom" puppet show with a whole decade dusts has finally came out from the grave and saw the light of day. Not only did it promote the art of classic puppet show, it gave the general public a chance to get to know a master of the time of Wang's skills, and his proficiency in composing and showing hand puppet show. Although "Romance of Three Kingdom" is a "Historical Play", the figure's story and fighting details described in the book is the pioneer of 'Martial Arts Show'. Able to handle 'Three Kingdom Show' means able to handle the techniques of plays of "Classic Play" and the thriller and detective chapter of "Martial Arts Show', and even the mysteriousness and weirdness of「Jiang Guang Xi」. Therefore, it is the best show any puppet show performer can use to perfect his/her skill. This thesis uses this 20 part "Romance of Three Kingdom" series as basis to further analyze 「Xiao Xi Yuan」Xu Wang, his coincidence with "Romance of Three Kingdom" and spectacular performance.
