Kunshan is famous for Kunqu Opera, which is the oldest form of opera in the world. It is said that Kunqu Opera is the ancestor of all Chinese operas. As an elegant opera in terms of music and the performer’s movement, Kunqu Opera was named a masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2001.

Visitors can learn about the history of Kunqu Opera and its past masters at the foot of Yufeng Hill. In addition, there is a special hall presenting performances of “Peony Pavilion,” a classic Kunqu Opera.
