The opera Jiangjie, co-produced by the Academy of Opera of Peking University and the Shenzhen Grand Theater, will be staged in the latter Sept 6-7 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the 30th anniversary of the theater's opening. 

The opera tells story of the heroine, Jiangjie, who was a member of the Communist Party of China and refused to surrender to the Kuomintang during the civil war in the late 1940s and was finally executed in a KMT prison. The opera was adapted from a full-length novel with the same name, and was first staged in 1964 in Beijing. It was a great success, and has since become a classic revolutionary opera.

The opera will also mark the beginning of the 23rd Shenzhen Grand Theater Art Festival.
