In China during the Sino-Japanese War of 1938, a worn-out young Japanese lieutenant unexpectedly saw a beautiful face that was familiar yet distant. As the night fell on the Green Willow Hotel, fate had also befallen ... Qiuzi, based on a true story, is the first modern grand opera in China. Seventy-three years after its premiere, student performers from Nanjing University of the Arts are recreating this epic opera in a 90-minute concert to yearn for peace and humanity.
