  On September 2, students from Class 4 Grade 3 of the Red Scarf Elementary School in Jianghan District gave a wonderful performance of the Peking Opera, Baodengming, which tells a story at a Lantern Festival in the North Song Dynasty. Teachers, students and parents in attendance all cheered with such enthusiasm at the level of professionalism of these little actors that it was chosen as the most popular program.

  These children have learned the Peking Opera for a year with only one lesson every week. No matter how hard the task was, they were always full of passion. After such a short time studying the traditional Chinese art, it's easy to see that these children are all absorbed by the charm of Peking Opera and have fallen in love with it.
