The Jinsha River, adapted from military writer CHEN Jing’s novel of the same name, tells a story about the advance detachment of the Red Army, under the command of head JIN Ming, breaking through the enemy’s defense line and crossing the Jinsha River. The Red Army clears up Tibetan girl Droma’s misunderstanding and gains the trust of her mother, the Tibetan chieftain Sanchi.

The Jinsha River is the third masterpiece in “the trilogy of operas about the Red Army” produced by NCPA. The rest two are the opera commission FANG Zhimin and Chinese epic opera The Long March.

The China NCPA Orchestra, under the baton of conductor ZHANG Guoyong, potrayed a musical picture for the long march, revealing rich Chinese flavours hidden in musical notes.

During the production process, the creative team went where the story had taken place, and integrated Tibetan region’s distinctive music and culture in the opera.

Composer LEI Lei composed arias and ensembles for the leading characters in the opera. The theme song Galsang Flower and Light-blue Heart Lake sung by WANG Zhe, who played Droma, not only was of the authentic Tibetan style, but had pure and pleasant refreshing melodies.

At the execution, JIN Ming, Sanchi and QIU Wanli give a trio, creating a tense and disconcerting atmosphere.

In the opera, the China NCPA Chorus gave a touching performance. They sang in distinct voices, shaping the image of different groups of people, including the Red Army, the Tibetans and the enemy.

In terms of stage setting, the director LIAO Xianghong tries to reflect how the Red Army “makes a long journey on foot”. In the meantime, the stage scenery is combined perfectly with multi-media projections, “realistically” embodying how the Red Army ploughs their way through the mud and what the natural environment on the Tibetan Plateau is like.

On the night of its first performance, vocalists WANG Kai, WANG Zhe, LIU Shan, GUAN Zhijing, WANG Hongyao, WANG Hexiang and LIANG Yufeng made their appearance on the stage. On the next day, this opera will be performed by WANG Zenan, WANG Lida, CHEN Guanfu, HUANG Yanming, ZHANG Zhuo, etc.
