Dear Sin Yee,

Do you have a particular DVD in hand? What is the title of the DVD? According to my understanding, the M1805.3 will classify the music or singing aspects of Chinese operas (if the media contains ??,??,or if the media is about ??,?? etc.). If for the whole opera, the PN class will be appropriate.

My colleagues and I have been wondering which LC classs would be most appropriate for Chinese operas in DVDs. There seem to be a choice between the following:
PN2876.A-Z Drama by cities in China
For this class, we are concerned modern types of drama will be mixed together with the traditional stuff such as Beijing operas.
M1805.3 - Chinese operas
We are wondering if this class is restricted to audio music only and not for videorecordings.
Could someone please clarify the difference between the two classes?
