By merging the former China National Youth Theater and China Central Experimental Theater, the National Theater Company of China (NTCC) -- a State-level performing art troupe of the People's Republic of China -- was established on December 25, 2001.

With a great number of excellent drama talents on stage and in the film and television industry, the theater carries on its time-honored traditions, explores new techniques and continues to create top-quality dramas. Under the leadership of Deng Xiaoping's theory and Jiang Zeming "Three Represents," the theater insists on the notion that art serves the people and endeavors to produce and stage dramas of high quality both in China and abroad to disseminate an advanced culture around the world.

The theater has created and performed five major dramas since its establishment: "Dawns Here Are Quiet (Former USSR)" "The Crucible (USA)," "The Visit (Switzerland)," "Head Without Tail" and "Call Me Brother." The theater has also organized some repertoires for international art festivals and drama exchanges in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Macao and Japan.

In the future, the National Theater of China will establish and consummate a scientific and creative management system to provide an open stage for new creations by talented dramatists, and continue to explore new ways to develop drama so that new faces, plays and elaborate works can abound.

The theater is headed by its current president Zhao Youliang and the vice-presidents Zhou Yuyuan, Huang Xiling and Wang Xiaoying. Yang Zongjing is the chief art supervisor.
