Evelyn D'Alroy as Turandot in 'Turandot, Princess of China'

Image caption

As interest in China grew around the turn of the century in the 1900s, the arts began to focus on the country as a subject of interest. Watching the plays that were written during this time period was the first time that many individuals were exposed to China in any way other than simply hearing about politics. However, because of the way that most Europeans viewed individuals who are native to other continents, there were only caucasian actors and actresses who took on the roles.
