The dispute over the birthplace
Lu Opera is developed from Shandong Qinshu, which is the most important form of folk art in Shandong. It can best represent the Shandong style, which has reached a broad consensus in the academic circles. However, as a form of drama, there are different views on where Lv Opera originated.
Around 1880 (the sixth year of qingguangxu), sun Zhongxin cooperated with Liu luanfeng and other singers to perform melodies with story lines, such as "stepmother beating a child" and "trial of Qingyang", according to the characters in the story, and performed in the form of drama. At that time, the masses called this art form "singing drama", and the main accompaniment instrument was four strings. Later, in the aspect of accompaniment, Yangqin and chuiqin were added. The singing style was changed from "Yangguang tune" to "sitting tune Yangqin", and soon developed to "topdressing Yangqin".
In 2007, Lvyi town of Boxing County was awarded the honorary title of "hometown of Chinese Lvju art" by the Ministry of culture.
