historical origin

Huai Diao belongs to a local opera of Bangzi Tune. According to the New Records of Henan Province, Henan Bangzi is a slightly flexible opera in the area of Qinyang, which is called "Huai Tiao", also known as "Huai Tiao", also known as "Zhanghe Old Tune". It is a popular and influential opera in northern Henan and southern Hebei. The popular areas include the old Zhizhangde (Anyang) Mansion, Weihui (Wei Hui) Mansion, Shunde (Xingtai) Mansion, Guangping (Yongnian) Mansion and Daming Mansion. The so-called "Five Governments Huai Diao". According to Anyang County Cultural Records, as early as the Sui and Tang Dynasties, Huai Diao began to be popular on both sides of the Yellow River. At that time, Huai Diao was based on chord tune, and its artistic style had initially formed. In the following years, Huai Diao was intermittent, rising and declining, neither breakthrough development nor disappearance with the changes of the times.

During the reign of Kangxi in Qing Dynasty, Huai Diao began to develop by leaps and bounds after thousands of years of cultural immersion. At this time, HuaiDiao has developed to the south of the Yangtze River and Huaihe River, and to the north of Beijing and Tianjin. HuaiDiao is not only popular among the people, but also has begun to enter the official prefectures. Among them, the official prefectures and the army in Henan and Hebei have sung HuaiDiao more frequently. Besides the official troupes, private HuaiDiao troupes are also more common. For example, Head Soap Class (Criminal Police), Second Soap Class (Internal Service) and Xiying Class (Garrison) in Changde Prefecture all have Huaihua shift, which is called "three shifts". At that time, there were a number of famous actors who had great influence in society and had great skills, such as the famous "Big Head King", the famous Danjiao Tianbao and the famous young student Yang Fengshan. The popularity of the masses has a smooth line: "Reading Military Books at Night" and "Big Head King" are so popular that they have "Erzhuang" for days. They have given up their father and their mother, and they can't give up Tianbao's "Anti-Western Tang Dynasty". Later, famous actors appeared successively, such as Ma Baisuo, Lianghe Tu, Guo Desheng and Lao Suicheng. Folk HuaiTiao, such as Duli, Xincun, Beiguo and Donggang in Linzhou, all have their own HuaiTiao classes.

During the reign of Qingdaoguang and Xianfeng, Hebei Bangzi and other voices appeared, and the performance market in the North was very active. Zhongzhou's small and high-profile development is extremely rapid. Various local operas are blooming everywhere, and HuaiDiao began to decline.

Nearly half a century after Tongzhi reign of the Qing Dynasty, Huai tune tone disappeared in a large area including northern Jiangsu, northern Anhui and southeastern Shanxi with the flow of artists and class clubs and the change of flags.

During the Republic of China, Huai Diao gradually declined.
