Han Show Theater celebrated its 2,000th performance on June 17. Beforehand, the theater announced that in the second half of the year, it will cooperate with Hubei Provincial Beijing Opera Theater to launch a new Beijing opera "Wukong."
Yang Geng, director of the creation and rehearsal department of the provincial theater, said that "Wukong" will be based on the classic Beijing opera "Havoc in Heaven" and be a collision between the traditional formula of Beijing Opera and the high-tech stage of Han Show. "We hope that through such a creation, more young people will come into the theater and learn about Beijing Opera."
