While The Dawns Here Are Quiet, an original opera production by the National Center for the Performing Arts, is being staged at the NCPA through Monday, a film production team from Shanghai Media Group is shooting an opera film by using new ultra high-definition 4K resolution based on it.

According to the opera's director Wang Xiaoying, The Dawns Here Are Quiet made its debut at the NCPA in 2015, and is again being staged at the Beijing venue since Friday - its fourth round of performances.

The opera, composed by Tang Jianping with libretto by Wan Fang, is based on Russian writer Boris Vasilyev's novel of the same title. It tells the story of five female soldiers fighting German troops during World War II.
