European Recital Tour Shows Premier Zhou Enlai's Glamour
During the May Day holiday, seven Chinese artists recited poems and articles in praise of late premier Zhou Enlai during a European tour. The program called Zhou Enlai - A Giant of the Grand Canal told remarkable stories from Zhou's life to the international audience.
The recital made skillful use of theatrics to present valuable historical materials and footage to the audience, producing strong visual effects. The wonderful readings by the artists brought bursts of applause.
The tour followed the footsteps of Zhou himself in Europe, with the first stop in Paris, France, then on to Hamburg, Germany and Hague, the Netherlands. The show received warm responses in each city.
