The show in 2019, Super Little Heroes, featured three classic characters from Chinese folk tales: the Monkey King, Hua Mulan and Ne Zha.

In addition to what they see on stage, children are clad in costumes of the characters.

"Every year we have a festival for pioneering Peking Opera shows staged for smaller theaters," Hao says.
