Du Fu, a play that tells the life story of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) poet of the same name, opened at Beijing's Capital Theater on Oct 17.

Written by Guo Qihong, directed by Feng Yuanzheng, and produced by Beijing People's Art Theater, it focuses on the last 15 years of the master poet.

Since its premiere in 2019, the play has been staged four times.
