In fact, it had been a long period of brewing time before Beijing opera had gained its leader position in the Wha-Ya competition in Ching dynasty. Beijing opera became prosper in late Ching dynasty since it integrated and absorbed all good qualities from various operas. Plays in Beijing operas usually came from very different opera classes. Taking Mulian opera as an instance, Mr. Chao, Jing-Sen (趙景深) believes it has very close relationship with the operas in Ching palace. However, after comparing plays in "Mongolian Che-Wang Prince Collection of Chinese Operas and Tunes"(《清車王府藏曲本》) with those scripts in Kao-Chiang (高腔) and Luan-Tan(亂彈) in "The Collection of Folk Literature", it is found that Mulian opera is also very close to Kao-Chiang, a type of opera popular during early Ching dynasty in Beijing. As a result, we may conclude that the bridge transforming "Play of Mulian saving mother to Beijing opera should not be only one. In addition to palace play "Chuang-Sian-Jing-Kur."(《勸善金科》), Kao-Chiang Mulian Opera should be included as well. This research compares music and scripts in the two popular Beijing operas, "Wha-Yo-San"(《滑油山》) and "Mulian Saving Mother"(《目連救母》), with those in "Chuang-Sian-Jing-Kur", Kao-Chiang, and other Beijing operas, so that the transformation and how it lasted can be realized. By analyzing related plays, and taking facts as evidences, what preceding opera class that Mulian Beijing opera is originated is investigated.
