Xuzhou Clapper Opera has a rich historical heritage, with roots stretching back to the early Ming Dynasty's Hongwu era. This art form has undergone continuous evolution over hundreds of years, resulting in the development of several distinct schools and styles. In 2008, Xuzhou Clapper Opera was recognized and added to the National Intangible Cultural Heritage List. This paper aims to explore the origins, evolution, and continued promotion of Xuzhou Clapper Opera through the use of field research techniques. The study investigates the origins and development trajectory of Xuzhou Clapper Opera, examines the various schools that have emerged within Zhou Clapper Opera, and assesses the promotion and preservation measures implemented to ensure the longevity of Xuzhou Clapper Opera as a national treasure. The results of this study are expected to provide valuable insights for the further development and dissemination of Xuzhou Clapper Opera, enhancing its reputation as a significant element of our nation's intangible cultural heritage.
