BEIJING, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- The following is a list of major shows, concerts, exhibitions and events in China for Wednesday:

-- Tap dance "Oscillate"

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Shanghai Grand Theatre, Shanghai

Choreographed by British artists Avalon Rathgeb and Dre Torres, the innovative tap dance by Old Kent Road reveals a group of individuals who collectively display a range of human interactions and relationships through movement and sound.

Debuting in London in 2018, the show unveils the struggles between communication and how it can be misunderstood by each other and those watching.

-- Musical "The Sound of Music"

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Haidian Theatre, Beijing

Based on Maria Von Trapp's autobiography, the Stroy of the Trapp Family singers, the musical tells the story of a free-spirited nun hired by Captain George Von Trapp to care for his seven children and eventually fall in love with him, and their love soon shattered when the war broke out.

The Sound of Music debuted at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in 1959 and finally became the second longest running Broadway musical in the 1950s. The 1956 film version won the Academy Award in 1966.

-- Immersive performance "Sleep No More"

Time: 7:00 p.m., 7:15 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 7:45 p.m.

Punchdrunk's "Sleep No More" is an award-winning theatrical experience that tells Shakespeare's classic tragedy "Macbeth." Co-produced by SMG Live, the venue of the Shanghai version is a five-floor abandoned building with over 90 cinematically detailed rooms.

To fully soak up the atmosphere and get involved in the plot, audiences will wear masks for the duration of the performance and are allowed to move freely and follow the performers throughout the whole building. Enditem
