The NCPA has assembled an international team and spared no efforts to produce the NCPA Children's opera, Snow White. Skillfully rearranged by the librettist Cai Jiahan, the classic fairy tale has its characters come on the opera stage. NCPA resident composer Cai Dongzhen has written dozens of melodic and catchy music melodies for the opera, making every character look more-rounded. With the production team under his leadership, Swiss director and set designer Stephan Grogler creates a space of imagination for children audiences while paying homage to this classic in a modern, symbolic and cartoon-like stage style.

Little Truck, Go!

Date: May 31-June 2, 2019

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Place: Multi-functional Theatre, China National Theatre for Children


Intellective and funny children's drama Little Truck, Chan-Chan-Change is a masterpiece of the "Change, Change, Change" series rolled out by the China National Theatre for Children. The first part "Chan-Chan-Change" is loved by children. Daily commonplaces, such as living articles, can be instantaneously changed into a lifelike little princess or sheep to act out one uproarious story after another. The second half is an inspirational fairy tale about the little truck helping an old sick truck risk sending medicine to a little hippo. Young audiences would be touched and start to learn to be independent. Enditem
