       The colourful opera arts of Suzhou date back a long time ago. Kunqu Opera is regarded as the ancestor of operas and Pingtan Opera is one of the Four National Operas.

  Kunqu Opera was proclaimed as a representative of Human Oral and Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in May 2001.

  Pingtan Opera and Suju Opera were listed into the first National-level Intangible Cultural Heritage Catalogue by the State Council in May 2006.
