The National Theater of China will stage a performance of Sudi Chunxiao (Dawn on the Su Causeway in Spring) from April 5 to 14 in Beijing, telling the story of Su Dongpo, a Song Dynasty (960-1279) poet, whose work is still celebrated today.

The play is named after one of the 10 most famous scenic spots on Hangzhou's West Lake in Zhejiang province. The location is known for its beautiful natural spring scenes, when the causeway is flanked by blossoming peach trees and weeping willows.
