Xi Opera originated from the "Dongxiang ditty" of local villagers in Changzhou and Wuxi along the coast of the Taihu Lake Lake, which was used for talking and singing for self entertainment. It was integrated with Daoqing and Spring singing, and developed into the form of folk art "Tanhuang". Later, it gradually absorbed folk ditty and dance from the south of the Yangtze River, and performed on the stage, renamed as "Changxi Wenxi Opera". It was named Xi Opera in 1952. Xiju mainly focuses on singing, with three major melodies of reed, mainland, and lingling, combined with dozens of folk tunes, forming a rich and full music system. The tunes are mostly soft, light, elegant, and lyrical, with a strong sense of life and a unique Jiangnan water town charm.

The Xi opera "Saving the Wind and Dust" tells that Song Yinzhang, a brothel girl, was cheated by Zhou She, the son of a millionaire, who abandoned her engagement with Xiucai An and married Zhou She. After marriage, she was humiliated and destroyed. Good sisters Zhao Paner used a clever trick to save Song Yinzhang, and finally, An Song became a lifelong friend. The melody of "chaotic chicken crowing" is absorbed from Pingtan and is often used to perform accompaniment for villains and clowns, with strong anecdotes. The selected passages of this song are for the accompaniment of Zhou She's performance in "Saving the Wind and Dust". The erhu is lively and rhythmic, babbling and babbling, while the yangqin is short and regular, with a ding dong ding dong sound, creating a dramatic character image that is irresistible to laugh at. In this humorous and witty melody, the erhu still occasionally flashes with graceful and melodious rhythms, alternating between lively jumps and long melodies, as if there are endless stories to tell, with a unique atmosphere.
