Full coverage: 2016 Spring Festival

The line-up has been finalized for CCTV's Spring Festival Gala. There will be 41 programs in all, presented at five venues, and the whole thing will last about four-and-a- half hours.

As with previous Spring Festival galas, martial arts are in the limelight again. This year, youngsters from the Zhonghua Martial Arts School of Laizhou, in eastern China’s Shandong province, will team up with renowned martial arts star Donnie Yen. And though there will only be one opera show, titled “Huaguo Mountain,” it will combine various traditions.

Pop singer Tan Weiwei will revisit the traditional form of folk singing and narration known as “Huayin Lao Qiang,” which originated in northwestern China’s Shaanxi province.

The 2016 CCTV Spring Festival Gala will be televised from five venues. The main venue will be CCTV’s headquarters in Beijing, and the other four sub-venues will be in the cities of Quanzhou, Guangzhou, Xi’an, and Hulunbuir.

The Hulunbuir sub-venue, in northern China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, will host the Quintessenso Children’s Choir who will perform their traditional holiday songs and dance.

The gala will be live broadcast February 7, Chinese New Year's Eve, the biggest and most important holiday in China.
