BEIJING - China's performance market ushered in a consumption peak during the five-day May Day holiday, with over 14,000 performances held nationwide, attracting over 6 million audience members, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism said Saturday.

The total box office revenue of the performance market reached 860 million yuan (about $133 million) during the holiday, recovering to 73 percent of the figure in the same period of 2019.

A total of 1,600 tourism performances were staged across the country, drawing over 2.4 million people and generating 360 million yuan at the box office.
