Yueju opera is a form of Chinese opera founded around 1906. Over time, it grew in popularity, now being the most popular form of Chinese opera after the Peking opera.
Yueju opera features are elegant and soft, which made it suitable for telling love stories. It was initially performed by men only, but female groups started performing in the style in 1923, and during the 1930s, the form became female-only.
