This form of opera is popular in the region south of the Yangtze River. It originated in Zhejiang Province, the location of the ancient State of Yue, hence the name.
It has a history of 70-80 years, starting with only narration and singing. Later, orchestra accompaniment was added. Absorbing the elements of Shaoxing Opera, it enriched them and created its own type of music. Yueju Opera is excellent at expressing emotions through singing.
