Taiping Huadengxi, or Taiping lantern opera, combines singing and dancing. It is a traditional local opera in Guizhou's Longli county and was enlisted as a provincial intangible cultural heritage in 2019.
Taiping lantern opera, now under the protection of the local government, has developed into a more diverse art form that includes opera singing, martial arts and interactive performances with the audience.
