Jiang Jie, a musical that tells the story of the female martyr, Jiang Zhuyun, who is also known as Jiang Jie, premiered in Chongqing on Sept 14.

Born in 1920 in Sichuan province, Jiang joined the Communist Party of China when she was 19, and is well-known thanks to the revolutionary novel Hong Yan (Red Crag) written by Luo Guangbin and Yang Yiyan, which was published in 1961. It recounts the actions of a group of Communists and their heroic battle in Chongqing in 1949, on the eve of the founding of the People's Republic of China.
