  A few days ago, villagers of Gangkou Village, Yanxia Town, Tongshan County, enjoyed the tea-picking opera in the village. Actors performing on stage were all the local villagers. Since its establishment last year, the troupe has been performing in the villages of the town and it is very popular with the villagers.

  Yanxia Town is located near the Fushui Lake, and the tea-picking opera has been popular in this area from the late Qing Dynasty (1636-1911AD). There is a folk song saying that “Fushui and Longyan weirs are linked together, carrying the children on the shoulder; watching the tea-picking opera in the evening, working hard in the day, living happily every day.” Since the 1960s and 1970s, the tea-picking opera has become popular in Honggang,Yanxia Town and so on. When there was a performance, people built a stage, hanging a gas lamp or two oil lamps high above the stage, and all the people of the surrounding areas rushed to watch the opera.

  The reporter in the performing site saw that the effect of the lighting, sound, scenery on the tea-picking opera stage is no less than that of the city troupe. (Photographed by Xu Dafa)
