In order to present the majestic beginning, the set designer LIU Xinglin designs a unique space for bespeaking the presence of the barren island, the sky, the unfathomable sea, and the marine peril.

In the artist PU Cunxin’s exquisite performance, the audience not only saw the Duke of Milan, who can do anything in the story, but also understood why such a monarch, who has a well-thought-out plan for revenge, finally gives up avenging himself and arranges a compromise.
