At the moment when the Red Army was withdrawing from Ruijin and setting foot on the journey, Political Commissar PENG, played by YAN Weiwen (Left), and Doctor HONG, played by WANG Zhe (Right), passionately eulogized the conjugal love, the family affection, and the revolutionaries’ lofty sentiments.

Pingyazi, played by WANG Hongwei, got poisoned when tasting edible wild herbs, unluckily getting swamped. He sang I Am Reluctant to Part with You, expressing his attachment to his comrades-in-arms.

China NCPA Chorus once again shaped the images of soldiers and civilians on the Long March. The artists from the Song and Dance Troupe of Datong Song and Dance Theatre depicted the Red Army's long-range raid during a day and a night and their heroic efforts made to capture the Luding Bridge.
