In the story, Dantes is an innocent young sailor who is framed and imprisoned for 14 years. He later returns to Paris with the treasure he found on the island of Monte Cristo and proceeds to carry out his plans of revenge on those who framed him.

Alina Chevik, the director of the original Russian production, and choreographer Irina Korneeva oversaw the creative process of the Chinese edition remotely, via web conferences.

The dancers of the Beijing Dance Drama and Opera, as well as four professional acrobats, also helped to ensure the high quality of the show.
