This play is adapted on the basis of TV series Palace of Desire. Based on this TV series, playwright exploits and deepens the contents to make the story better and moving. The three main characters in this play refer to Xue Shao, Princess Taiping and princess’s mother Wu Zetian. Male role Xue Shao and Wu Zetian stage a plot related to 'conspiracy and love', which is also violent struggle between power and true love.
