Early Spring is an original Dance Drama by Shanghai Opera House composed by Du Wei, directed by Wang Yuanyuan and performed by Shanghai Opera House Dance Ensemble. It is adapted from the novel February of Rou Shi. In front of the contradictions between ideality and reality, the protagonist Xiao Jianqiu’s feelings, serving as the main line, reflected a prevalent indifference to the vulnerable during the 1920s in the traditional rural culture in China. The seemingly unintentional gossips and gibes has suppressed kindness and destroyed human nature, and finally led to tragedy. Young people’s agony and confusion facing such a depressed and twisted society is therefore reflected.
