The structuralist narratology that emerged in the 1960s has been going through a theoretical process for half a century, and the number of scholars engaged in its theoretical study in China has been increasing year by year since the 1980s, with closer exchanges and dialogues between the Chinese narratology community and its foreign counterparts. Among the artistic disciplines, however, there are still few scholars who have studied the discipline of Chinese vocal singing from the perspective of its integration with narrative theory. This paper will, for the first time, use Chinese national art songs as an example, combining valuable practical insights gained from the author's interviews with Chinese singers, and plumbing the ways in which narrative theory can be used to combine theory and practice in their singing techniques.
