An original drama, Chunfengzhengdu (The Spring Breeze is Crossing), premieres on August 29 at the Theater of the Cultural Palace of Nationalities in Beijing.

The play describes the life of people who live at the foot of the Great Wall in northwest Beijing's Yanqing district and the profound aura of cultural and historical importance that can be found there.

The name of the drama was carefully considered by the scriptwriter, Wu Tong, and the play is adapted from a famous poem composed during the Tang Dynasty (618-907).

Its production is timely, as it coincides with Yanqing's growing importance as a significant part of the hosting of the upcoming 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games.

Director, Gu Wei, sets a beautiful and elegant stage for the drama and strives for perfection — in the down-to-earth story, the life-like details and vivid languages, for instance, use of the Yanqing dialect.

The drama runs until Aug 31, before moving on to other venues in September.
