Peking Opera, Nightmare at the Han Palace, General Yao Qi, Cao Qiao Pass

The story takes place during the reign of Emperor Guangwu of the Han Dynasty. The Emperor Guangwu Liu Xiu (BC 6-AD 57) of East Han Dynasty (AD 25-220) ennobled Yao Gang Marquis Menglie because of his achievement. Grand Tutor Guo Rong begrudged Yao's. When Yao Gang's celebrating parade went to the streets, Guo Rong set a forbidden zone in front of his mansion to stop Yao's parade. Yao Gang was upset so that he brought down Guo Rong by accident.

Guo's daughter is a concubine of the emperor. She asks the emperor to behead Yao Gang and avenge her father. Having cleared up the case, the emperor absolved Yao Gang of capital crime, then deported him. But Imperial Concubine Guo was still unwilling to give up her avengement. She pretended to ask for absolving Yao Gang again, and called General Yao Qi in the frontier, father of Yao Gang, to palace appreciating the emperor. As the emperor was ebriety,  she broke a cup on the floor and falsely accused Yao of molesting the emperor's wife. And she ordered Deng Yu to behead Yao Qi and other meritorious ministers privately. But Deng Yu beheaded some criminals awaiting for execution instead of these meritorious ministers. When Liu Xiu waked up from ebriety, he mistook that those meritorious ministers had been killed already. He was panic-stricken for long time. The emperor gave orders to jail Imperial Concubine Guo and banish Deng Yu. Then he went to the ancestral shrine for offering an apology. At the moment, Deng Yu came with Yao Qi and other meritorious ministers. They told the emperor the truth. It happened that Niu Miao invaded the border at the Cao Qiao Pass. The emperor immediately dispatched Yao Qi and his son to the frontier with Ma Wu to ward off the enemy.
