The opera "Women General of Yang Family", which was staged at the Mei Lanfang Theatre, starred three generations of artists with the China National Peking Opera Company (CNPOC).
The opera, set against the backdrop of warfares in the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), eulogizes the patriotism demonstrated in Yang Family's battle against the invading Liao Kingdom and Western Xia Kingdom.
The CNPOC created and rehearsed the opera in 1959, which was later widely believed to have marked a milestone for the development of Peking Opera with a history of nearly 200 years.
