Two performers from North Korea's Sea of Blood Opera Company rehearse for the opera "The Flower Girl" at the National Grand Theatre in Beijing. The opera is touring China, as we learn from the Chinese media:
30 years have passed since the premiere of the revolutionary opera "The Flower Girl" adapted from the immortal classic "The Flower Girl." It has been staged more than 1,300 times before workers, peasants, youth and students and working people from all other walks of life and foreigners and overseas compatriots and millions of people have enjoyed it.
As it teaches the truth that the exploited and oppressed should turn out on the road of struggle and revolution in order to carve out their destiny, the revolutionary opera has gripped the hearts of the people for its ever-increasing attraction and vitality.
