On December 18 and 19, 2021, the dance opera "Goddess in Luo River", which is created by Zhengzhou Opera and Dance Theatre, directed by Tong Ruirui, and choreographed by Feng Shuangbai, will be presented at the Shangyin Opera House - Opera Hall, staging a beautiful and moving romantic legend for Shanghai audiences.
"Goddess in Luo River" is originated from the poem, Ode to Goddess in Luo River, written by famous poet Cao Zhi in the Three Kingdoms period. Caozhi just passed by the Luo river and suddenly felt that the Goddess Luosheng was coming towards him. After waking suddenly, he wrote down this marvelous poem which left the future generations many to wonder. "Goddess in Luo River" performed by the Zhengzhou Opera Company. It is a tragedy mixed with a power struggle between two brothers, Cao Pi and Cao zhi, for a gorgeous woman.
The performance is a complex process, but the whole performance from the choreography, to the music, to the lighting, to the modeling, is fantastic; especially the choreography, which has great esthetics. The director of this drama is Ruirui Tong, a talented director from the China Opera Company. Who is not supposed to be underestimated for her age; in this opera she uses the modern appreciation of art to explore the classical beauty, which gives the opera a fresh feel.
An opera, through the wonderful dancing, makes people comprehend the story. They can insight the uncertainty of life via romantic theme and tragic life. This kind of feeling lingers on even after the show is over. It highlights the competence of the production team.
The production team together with the famous writer, use their wisdom to create an unique artistic temperament and tension. In the end, whether the drama conveys the essence of "Goddess in Luo River", or what will happen to the characters, doesn't seem important. Everything is gone as the curtain is falling, but the beauty of the art travels across time.
