Editor's Note: A stage play based around love letters, a concert remembering iconic singer Leslie Cheung, and an exhibition of paintings by renowned artist Bao Jia: Here are three events you won't want to miss this week.

1,Stage play: "Love Letters"

Writing letters was once the simplest and most common way for people to communicate with one another. However, with people's fast-paced lives brought about by the information age, handwritten letters have become something of a rarity. In "Love Letters," a love spanning four decades is condensed into an hour and a half stage performance through 76 letters.

Dates: April 2-5

Venue: National Center for the Performing Arts, Beijing
