The performing tour in China of the famous opera "Flower Girl" of North Korea was very successful, a newspaper said Tuesday.
"The unprecedented performance was extremely successful and will be a landmark in North Korea-China traditional friendship," the newspaper Minju Joson quoted the head of the opera delegation Choe Chang Il as saying.
It will boost the exchange of culture and art between the two countries, Choe added.
The Chinese audience were deeply attracted by the ideological content and exquisite art of "Flower Girl", said the director O Kyong Chol.
The scenery, unique vocal accompaniment and beautiful dances were extremely new to the ear and the eye of the people, O said.
"Flower Girl," one of the "Five North Korean Revolutionary Operas," made a performing tour in more than 10 Chinese cities from April 15 to May 31.
