After the conference, a reporter from TACC commented, “The Dawns Here Are Quiet is very popular in Russia. Before the press conference, I was curious about how the Chinese artists would present this opera. When I saw their performance, which blended the familiar melody very well with Chinese style, I think this opera will be embraced by the Russia audience”.
