The famous Zhejiang Yue Opera Troupe that propagandizes the art of Yue Opera is a troupe directly controlled by Zhejiang Provincial Department of Culture. It was founded in 1949 in the same year of the birth of the People’s Republic of China. So far, it has gone through nearly 70 years of glorious history.

Through the ages, Zhejiang Yue Opera Troupe has been highly praised by people of all walks of life for its unique artistic style and exquisite stage performance. Several generations of artists represented by Yao Shuijuan, etc., are diligent in exploration and innovation, creating more than one hundred and fifty outstanding operas with deep implication and rich flavor of the times, thus making the Troupe be known as a Yue Opera Art Troupe with numerous elites and noted dramas. Premier Zhou Enlai once made a speech after watching the performance of the Troupe that: “The performance of new Yue Opera by both men and women is the result of emancipating the mind and breaking the superstition. … This form of Yue Opera performance ought to flourish.”

After decades of hardening and polishing, Zhejiang Yue Opera Troupe, which has been educated by its predecessors and rose abruptly based on its accumulated strength, has adhered to the mission of serving the masses, stuck to the characteristics of men and women co-starring, stressed on the diversified development of stage performance and film and television production, achieving new breakthroughs continuously and cultivating a large number of talents with senior technical titles based on inheritance and creation, and thus created and performed a large number of outstanding plays and operas, which won hundreds of provincial or higher-level awards, including “Plum Blossom Award”, “Wenhua Award”, the “Five ‘One’ Project” Award of the Central Propaganda Department, the First Prize of the Chinese Television “Flying Apsaras Award”, the Chinese Yue Opera Festival “Opera Gold Award”, the “Chinese Drama Society Award” and the “Wenhua Excellent Opera Award” and other state-level awards, and has broken the record of zero national “Five ‘One’ Project” award in Zhejiang Province.

In face of the beautiful new journey put forward in the 19th National Congress, Zhejiang Yue Opera Troupe insists on the stage art creation and the film and television art creation at a same pace. It will continue to adhere to the concept of creating fine plays and the artistic characteristics of men and women co-starring, blazing new trails in a pioneering spirit to make unremitting efforts and contributions to build a cultural Zhejiang with new ideas and development concepts.
