PLA Song & Dance / China National Day 2010

To celebrate the 61st anniversary of the establishment of the Glorious Motherland...

... I am reposting some photos from the 10th anniversary of the Hong Kong Handover that I took in 2007.

Photos 1, 2, 3 & 4: The 'Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Song & Dance Troupe', General Political Department (GPD).

Photos 5 & 6: The 'National Ballet of China' performing a 'model opera' called 'The Red Detachment Of Women', which was first premiered on 26 September 1964. According to China's main ticketing website, "this play shook the entire foundation of bourgeois art".

Photos 7 & 8: The Beijing Military Area Command 'Zhan You Art Troupe' mass choir sing a concert entitled 'The Long March Suite - The Red Army Is Undaunted By The Long Expedition'. Songs include; 'My Dear Motherland', 'The Guerrilla's Song', 'In the Army', 'The Flags Are Fluttering', 'Spring Plough' and 'The Yellow River'.

Happy National Day!
