In the 1960s, black-and-white film Visitors on the Snow Mountain was a smash hit. In 2014, the NCPA staged the opera version of Visitors on the Snow Mountain by composer LEI Lei, librettist YI Ming, director CHEN Xinyi and an international creative team. The opera depicted the rivalry through music, recreating the charm of the original. LEI Lei, who had also composed for the film, incorporated a distinct traditional Xinjiang art style into symphonic music, where the newly-created tunes were a gripping rendition of the love between Amir and Grandam, and the unmasking of the pseudo-Grandam.

The concert version of Visitors on the Snow Mountain breaks with the tradition of opera concerts and constructs a theatrical space in a concert hall. Through simple but effective scheduling and supplemented by set, costumes, props, lighting and other artistic means, the audience can enjoy the opera in the Concert Hall. The concert version of Visitors on the Snow Mountain will be streamed live on the NCPA Classical Music Channel and various online platforms on the evening of the 22nd.
