The Case of “Happy Pulse” is a classic flower drum opera. It has been performed in a national opera performance show as the Hunan local opera representative. Its screenwriters, directors, and composers have won many awards for it. In early June, the revival of this opera was included in the Special Fund for Hunan’s Comprehensive Cultural Development Program.
These performers were guided by the actors who have performed the opera before; famous flower drum opera performers Tian Ji’an, Xie Xiaojun, and Xing Xianfeng; and, artists from the Hunan Provincial Flower Drum Opera Protection and Inheritance Center. Their performance won big applause from the audience that day.
