Battle of Shanghai, a theatrical production produced and performed by the Shanghai Circus School and Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe, will be staged at the Tianqiao Performing Arts Center in Beijing on May 8 and 9.

Marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, the theatrical production, adapted from a Chinese movie of the same title in 1959, tells a patriotic story through 20 shows combining acrobatics, magic and multimedia technology, to portray combat scenes and heroic characters against the backdrop of the War of Liberation (1946-49) in Shanghai.

The show premiered in Shanghai in May 2019 and then toured other Chinese cities, including Haikou of Hainan province, Fuzhou of Jiangxi province, Guangzhou of Guangdong province and Suzhou of Jiangsu province.
