It is basically derived from the 'Caicha Tune' of Huangmei county which is a form of folk dancing and singing. At first it was noted for 'Liangxiaoxi' (two-role drama) and 'San-xiaoxi' (three-role drama) but then under the influence of Qingyang Tune and Hui Tune it gradually became a theatrical form which could present full-length works . Its tunes still keep the true flavor of folk songs, beautiful and touching, and singing while dancing also continues to be a feature of its acting style. After the founding of the People's Republic of China, Huangmei Opera has greatly developed and been warmly welcomed by the audience.
Well-known performers are Yan Fengying, Wang Shaofang and Pan Jingli.
