With a contemporary perspective and a script where reality is intertwined with fiction, Li Bai unfolds around the literati's movement between the tangible and the intangible as he struggles between his search for the "Taoism way" and "political influence".

Director Han Baoquan created a stage that reveals Li Bai's emotional world through choices he makes at key junctures of his life. An aesthetic depiction of the poet's passion, talent and audacity put forward a Li Bai who was persistent in his pursuits. As lead actor Hu Yang put it, "Each person has their own Li Bai." Perhaps the most valuable takeaway from the play for an audience member is finding a part of him- or herself in the literary giant.
