  Villagers watched folk opera performance in Jiaohang Village, Jishu Town, Jining City of Shandong Province March 2.

  Shandong Bangzi Opera is one of local folk art forms of the Han nationality. It is very popular in the southwest and central area of Shandong province. The performance of the traditional drama “Wufeng Ling”offered villagers of Jishu Town an artistic feast of eyes on March 2, 2016.

  Natives of Jinxiang have deep love for traditional operas. Today there are various kinds of entertainment ways, the folk opera is still one of the most important cultural feasts for people in Jinxiang. “During the Spring Festival, more than ten villages in Jishu Town invited theoretical groups to perform in their village.” said Du Dongju, head of the culture station of Jishu Town.

  People in Jinxiang spend large amount of money on the appreciation of folk operas, according to Ma Jianzhong, a researcher of Shandong Academy of Arts. “People here love to go to the theatre and mind little about money.”

  However, most of the audiences of the folk art are old people today. Just a few young people show interest in these traditional operas. “To attract more young audiences, we should produce more modern dramas,” said Ma. New energy should be injected to the traditional art form, while its essence should be inherited and developed. Jinxiang has explored new ways to innovate the content and form of the art.
