Tuong art, the precious art of nation, it has developed on the land of Binh Dinh, asscociated with the most famous Tuong writter. Despite of the historical fluctuations, through the war, Binh Dinh people still keep their own art and resist cultural invasions from abroad to make Binh Dinh still a point of talent convergence of Tuong art.
The art history of Tuong Binh Dinh developed with the name of Dao Duy Tu (now Dao Duy Tu temple in West Hoai Thanh commune, Hoai Nhon district, from National route 1A 2km) and Dao Tan.
Dao Duy Tu is called the first forefather of Boi singing in Binh Dinh. He was gooad at literature and martial arts, was ordained Military General. He was the first son of a famous female singer at Thang Long capital, so he was also good at poetry and music. Studying well, high talented but he could not attend examination because his mother was a singer who was in class “singer has no position in society”, so he left to the South to examine his talent and be used by Lord Nguyen. Dao Duy Tu set up Tuong- Boi singing and organized singing groups. With good works of Tuong still remained till now: San Hau (Ong Dinh, Dong Kim Lan, Khuong Ninh Ta), Son Ha Xa Tac…
And in the mid of Nguyen Dynasty, Binh Dinh produced a playwright about Tuong (Boi singing), that was Dao Tan in Vinh Thanh village, Phuoc Loc commune, Tuy Phuoc district. He was born in 1845, graduated from Dinh Mao (year of Cat 1867) at Binh Dinh exam school. He was a talented artist, good at Boi singing skills. Dao Tan established Hoc Bo Dinh Vinh Thanh (Tuy Phuoc district, Binh Dinh now). Because he studied Boi singing in many regions so Hoc Bo Dinh Vinh Thanh became the highest peak in training school of Boi singing at that time. From Hoc Bo Dinh Vinh Thanh, many famous names in Boi singing career were born, such as: Bat Phan, Cuu Khi, Bau Thom, Bau Chang… then, Boi singing movement developed throughout Binh Dinh land and it has become a special culture of this land.

Over hundreds of years, Boi singing has become more and more popular in spiritual life of Binh Dinh people. Not only that, the exchange, combination of Tuong art and Binh Dinh martial arts has brought Tuong Binh Dinh to a newer and more diffrerent art than Tuong groups of other provinces.
Now in Binh Dinh, besides Tuong Dao Tan Theater, there are dozen of Boi singing groups in countryside. Those amateur Boi singing groups are often invited to perform in countryside. Actors are men and women peasants, never be taught in an official class but they are taught by their previous generations and passionate of Boi singing art. After performing night at the entrance of village or in the mound, “Quan Cong”, “Lu Bo”, “Dieu Thuyen”… returned to buffaloes, ploughs, fields and gardens, but not because of that they give up their passion for Boi singing.
