Huangmei opera

Huangmei is famous for its tea and tea-picking songs, which evolved into Huangmei opera (黃梅戲 or 黃梅調; pinyin: Huángméixì or Huángméidiào). The opera was derived from "Caicha" (tea-picking — "cha" means "tea") tunes and folk ditties which people sang while picking tea. It is a combination of local folk songs, dances, and some ancient operas. Huangmei opera flourished in the 18th century to become one of the most famous traditional Chinese opera forms.


Huangmei is connected to Jiujiang by two bridges across the Yangtze River.
