Yueju

Yueju is a modern form of Chinese opera, developed in the 20th century. Yueju is famous for its emotional, sweet, soft songs and gentle style, as can be seen in the 1994 Shanghai Yueju Opera Theatre Company’s production Revenge of the Prince. The original Yueju did not have a script, merely an outline of the story, but modern productions now feature directors.
