The musical “Destroying Opium at Humen” tells the story of Lin Zexu entering Guangzhou in 1839, announcing a smoking ban on foreign businessmen, and seizing opium deposits, which shocked the world. However, facing the seizure of large opium quantities, Lin Zexu did not know how to deal with them. He sought Qian Niang, whose husband was a smoker, to understand how to destroy the opium. Once the method was established, Lin destroyed opium from across Dongguan in Humen.
