Performance of Mansudae Art Troupe Highly Acclaimed by Chinese
| Pyongyang, October 15 (KCNA) -- The Mansudae Art Troupe of the DPRK gave a performance in Dandong City, China as part of the events of the DPRK-China friendship week.
The venue of the performance was crowded by people.
The performance was highly acclaimed by the audience for its high ideological value and artistry and immaculate presentation.
The mayor of the Dandong City People's Government said that the performance was fantastic.
The Chinese people have deep memories of the arts of the DPRK in the 1970s and the 1980s, the mayor said, and continued:
Still fresh in our memory are the performances of "The Flower Girl" and "Sea of Blood", revolutionary operas.
"Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai" and "A Dream of Red Mansions", operas created under the guidance of General Secretary Kim Jong Il, were highly acclaimed by the Chinese audience.
I would like to invite famous art troupes to China in the future.
The director of the Cultural Department of Dandong City said:
"It was first time for me to see such a perfect performance. It is so elegant and fantastic and the talent of performers is so high. The Mansudae Art Troupe is a renowned arts organization. I saw the performance of the highest level."
A citizen of Dandong City said that the performance left deep impression on Dandong citizens, adding that he saw the world-level performance.
Another citizen said that dance "Victory of Revolution Is in Sight" was so impressive, adding:
I could not repress hatred for the Japanese imperialists.
The peoples of the two countries which won victory in an anti-Japanese joint struggle will continue to fight against the imperialists, shoulder to shoulder in the future, too.
The DPRK-China friendship forged with blood will be everlasting just like the flow of the Amnok River.
A music teacher of the Koreans' Cultural and Arts Hall in Dandong said that the performance was so peculiar. Not only those in Dandong but from Shenyang and other areas came to see the performance. It raised the national pride of the Koreans in China, he added.
