( chinadaily.com.cn ) 2019-08-22

A rich series of artistic events -- including Chinese classic dramas and concerts – are currently creating a special evening and night ambience in Shanghai's Jiading district.

Officials said Huating town in Jiading has ramped up its efforts to carry forward traditional culture by exploring the development of a "Huating village opera" brand. The events present Chinese traditional dramas and sketches which are popular among villagers.

Visitors say it is easy to be drawn in by the atmosphere and enthusiasm as audiences move their bodies to the music and sing along when opera actors perform on stage.

Officials said the series of activities have achieved a good combination. Traditional and modern culture are on offer, so that the villagers and visitors can enjoy the nighttime to the full.

The event will run to Aug 25.
