Large-scale original opera performance Zheng He premiered at Jiangsu Grand Theater on June 7.

The Zheng He opera is part of the activities to mark the 10th World Oceans Day and National Ocean Day. It tells the story of Zheng He's seven trips to the west leading treasure-hunting ships. During the voyage, Zheng He encountered chaos and wars on islands, assassinations by his opposition, storms at sea and other crises. Eventually, he overcame them and opened a sea channel of peace, laying the foundation for the historic and cultural friendship between coastal countries and regions along the Maritime Silk Road.
