A River All Red tells the tragic story of one of China's most celebrated generals, Yue Fei, and his resolute loyalty to the people and the throne even in the face of betrayal.

In addition to the singing, dancing and acrobatics, Peking Opera takes full advantage of its unique stagecraft of symbolism to present a breath-taking scene of the battlefield, a sensory feast.

This is an exceptional opportunity to be immersed in the intriguing art of Peking Opera and take a cultural adventure into Chinese traditional artistic heritage from a world class company, China National Peking Opera Company. The magnificent costumes and the artful combination of dance, mime, music and acrobatics provide a source of wonder for audiences of all ages.
