The initiative aims to instill a love for opera and to pass on Chinese raditional culture to the younger generation.

Recently, the Jingjiang Xi Opera Troupe performed the opera "Blooming Red Plum Blossoms" at a local middle school, allowing students to experience the rich history and patriotic spirit embedded in this traditional art form.

The troupe is committed to promoting cultural heritage by bringing opera to schools and nurturing opera talents and enthusiasts.

The program has also established drama clubs in elementary schools across Jingjiang city, where students can receive weekly instruction from professional opera teachers.

The professionals also conducted a lecture on opera culture for music teachers in primary and middle schools to enhance their opera knowledge and skills, thus enriching the teaching curriculum.
