The Huangmei Opera piece On Sun Mountain was presented by the Anqing Huangmei Opera Art Theater at the China Grand Theater of Pingju Opera in Beijing on Dec 4.

The story takes place on Sun Mountain, where the story of Li Anben, a telegraph operator in a small town at the foot of the mountain, unfolds. Initially depicted as greedy and lazy, as the plot progresses, Li undergoes a remarkable transformation. Moved by the selflessness of the New Fourth Army soldiers, who sacrifice their lives to save his mother from Japanese invaders, Li's character evolves. In the end, he joins the New Fourth Army and becomes a courageous soldier.

This Huangmei Opera adaptation introduces audiences to the melodious tunes, graceful dance movements, and singing style that characterize the traditional art form. The performance brings a fresh perspective to the stage, immersing viewers in a heartwarming tale of bravery and sacrifice. With this production, the Anqing Huangmei Opera Art Theater continues to ensure the vitality of the treasured cultural heritage.

It is part of a program of Anhui's finest plays, which runs from November to January. Presenting 12 exceptional plays, the program will tour major cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing in Jiangsu province, Hangzhou in Zhejiang province, and Hefei in Anhui province.
