A landscape spectacle was premiered in Xibaipo, Hebei Province on Tuesday. The city was the location of the central committee of the Communist Party of China and the headquarters of the People's Liberation Army between May 1948 and March 1949.

2000 audience members were on hand to watch the celebratory performance.

Deafening sounds of thunder, wind, and ice cracking raised the curtain of the performance. In five acts, the spectacle chronicles the CPC's righteous and transcendent course.

The one-and-a-half-hour long show boasts imitation tanks, fake guns, horses, and an over 400 square meter LED screen that lets the warfare scenes reappear. More than 1500 actors presented the marvellous performance on a 3000-square-meter stage.

Some popular revolutionary ballads of that era were sung to recall the past hardship, struggles and victories. The finale piece was the profound "The East is Red."
