In its early days, the theater created a number of excellent operas, such as Lady Chen Sanwu, Lady Su Liuniang, Farewell Islet, Book of Defense, Reunion and Hairpin. In recent years, it has made spectacular achievements in staging new productions, such as Zhang Chunlang Cutting off the Hairs which won high acclaim during the 1st China Art Festival and was made into film. Yuan Chonghuan won the state award for excellent script. Lord Chen Selecting His Son-in-Law won the 4th Wenhua Award for new play and script and the provincial Quality Art Work Award. Its Zhongnan Soul, Yue Yinping and Frontier Romance won various prizes in the provincial art festival. The opera Veteran Returing Home was nominated for the script of China Cao Yu Drama Award. The theater has toured Singapore, Thailand, France, Australia, Vietnam, Cambodia, the U.S.A. and other countries as well as the regions of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.
