To honor the 100th an­niver­sary of the birth of Chen Bo­hua, a master of Han Opera, the Wuhan Han Opera Theater has cre­ated a new drama Nichang Changge ( Rain­bow-col­ored Long Song) ) based on Chen's classic opera high­lights Hun­dred Flow­ers Pav­il­ion. The opera is un­der in­tense re­hearsal now and will de­but at Qin­tai Grand Theater on June 29.

The drama retells the love story be­tween Em­peror Xuan­zong of the Tang dy­nasty and Yang Yuhuan, his fa­vorite im­pe­rial con­cu­bine. It pon­ders on the cause of An-Shi Re­bel­lion and the hid­den cri­sis in the Tang dy­nasty. Writ­ten by play­wright Hu Ying­ming and di­rected by the fa­mous direc­tor Chen Xinyi, the opera ver­sion not only re­counts their leg­endary love story, but also shows the su­perb per­for­mance of the fe­male lead­ing roles in Han Opera.
