The play, starring Chinese actress Zhang Jingchu, shows the positive and uncompromising attitude of the heroine Matsuko toward her tragic life.

Director Zhao Miao said the COVID-19 epidemic this year has made people rethink life, family and love, which is also the theme of Matsuko's story.

Zhao said a lot of dancing and body movements were blended into the play to present the fantasy world of Matsuko in the hope of making it more impressive and appealing to the audience.

The play will be staged in nine cities including Beijing, Shenzhen and Chengdu during the tour.
