Chinese Moved to Tears by DPRK Opera
Pyongyang, February 7 (KCNA) -- The Chinese People's Daily on Feb. 3 carried an article titled "'Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai' moves people to tears despite language barrier".

The Phibada Opera Troup of the DPRK made performance tour of China with the opera on the theme of "Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai", the paper said, and went on:

Korean artistes' performance of the opera deeply touched audiences through a perfect and flawless artistic ensemble of songs and dances.

The vocal skill of the artiste who played the part of Zhu Yingtai was very high.

The story "Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai" was reproduced in a modern style by Chinese Shaoshing opera artistes and staged by Koreans as an opera in Korean.

This will no doubt add new beautiful pages to the history of cultural exchange between China and the DPRK in the future, too.
