Except for Kunqu Opera that originated in east China's Jiangsu Province, the other four styles of opera are originally from Zhejiang, the best known of which is Shaoxing Opera, also known as Yue Opera.

The closing show was a newly-created opera show reconstructing the history of Yue Opera and demonstrating the diverse culture of Zhejiang.
