Famous Chinese modern drama "Sunrise" was performed by Mongolian artists at Mongolia's State Academic Drama Theater on Saturday, as part of the celebration of the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Mongolian audiences were on the edge of their seats for two hours, watching the artists of the Mongol Tuurgatan Theater performing the "Sunrise" written by Chinese playwright Cao Yu.

Speaking at the premiere of this play, Dorjsuren Munkhbat, director of the performing team, expressed gratitude to the Chinese Cultural Center in Ulan Bator for its support in staging the play.

Art is the best way to learn more about other cultures, he said.

The "Sunrise," published in 1936, is among the most frequent productions at China's famous theaters. In the play, the stories of several Shanghai women show their lives disintegrating in response to the lack of affection and acknowledgment by the society surrounding them, leading them down a tragic path from which they cannot escape.
