A classic children's drama "Malan Flower" is returning to the stage of the China National Theatre for Children at the start of June to celebrate the theater's 60th founding anniversary.
Recalling Chinese stories where hard work leads to happiness, it features diligence of a young girl named Xiao Lan who is happily married to the god of flowers, Ma Lang.
Created in 1956, the drama "Malan Flower" has undergone several adaptations.
But the main cast behind the scenes told a press conference held in the Beijing-based theater that the upcoming version is not just a repeat of past performances but a totally new creation. New in-theater 4D effects are included in the updated drama to create a vivid backdrop with a forest full of vitality.
