Known as Henan bangzi, Yuju (Henan opera) originated from local folk plays during the Qing Dynasty, with elements added from Shaanxi opera and Puzhou bangzi. Around the end of the Qing Dynasty Henan opera spread to the cities and under the influence of Peking opera became a fully developed genre popular in Henan, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Hebei, Shandong and Anhui. Its long stay in the countryside has given it a lively, simple, rural character.
