"Ninety-five percent of the shows sold out, proving that audiences are interested in these young artists," says Zhao. "NCPA celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and Spring Flowers and Autumn Fruits - Chinese Art Schools Week is welcoming its 10th year in 2018. This festival is an important event to showcase young artists in Chinese colleges."

This year's festival will see a variety of programs, including traditional Chinese opera, dance, singing and theatrical drama.

Students and teachers from Beijing Opera Art's College will perform in an original Peking Opera, titled The Teenager Ma Lianliang, on Oct 14. The opera, which premiered in 2012, follows the story of the late Peking Opera master, Ma Lianliang (1901-66).

On Nov 5, students and teachers from the National Academy of Chinese Theater Arts will stage The Legend of the White Snake and four other traditional Peking Opera pieces.
