Wanbang is a kind of opera in Nanyang, Henan Province. It is mainly popular in Neixiang county and has a history of more than 300 years. The repertoire is mainly played in the historical dynasties, with a unique high-octave "heaving sound" patternwork, coupled with the characteristic instrument "Banghu", whose timbre is euphemistic and clear, just like birdsong. From the perspective of oral history, this paper interviewed the representative inheritors of Wanbang in the old, middle and young generations, and further analyzed the changes of the inheritors' ideas and behaviors in the course of The Times.
