Doctor of traditional Chinese Opera Miss Yuan Yingming, student of the famous Chinese Opera performing artist Mei Baojiu, was responsible for the tutoring work. The majority of the 40 actors who were engaged in the performance were from the performing department of J.F.Oberlin University, around the age of 19 to 22. The repertoire of the performance is the "Three Forks" and the " Madame White Snake ". The rich repertoire, standardized style, neat lineup and fantastic visual experience are undoubtedly the highlight of the performance.

This performance had left a deep impression on every member of the Peking opera troupe and every audience.
