Music is always a source comfort in times of peace, war or epidemic. The China National Opera House's indoor mini opera A Sunny Day and music video Together found their way onto the official website and social media accounts of the China Cultural Center in Seoul on May 4.

As a salute to those heroes fighting against the virus, the opera highlighted the panic and grief of the people during the COVID-19 outbreak and the bravery and sacrifice of the medics. It rendered the story of the epidemic into a mini opera.

The music video, Together, is a collaborative effort by Chinese and Italian opera singers. Based on famous works from the two countries -- the Chinese folk piece Jasmine Flower and Nessun Dorma (None Shall Sleep) from Giacomo Puccini's Turandot -- the song conveys a message of hope and love.
