"I think this performance is very interesting. It's my first time to watch Peking Opera in theater, though I studied in China for a few years. So I'm really happy to watch this performance in Lithuania," Aizhana, a woman from Kyrgyzstan who has a Lithuanian husband and lives in the Baltic country currently, told Xinhua in fluent Chinese.

"I was really touched by the story, I don't even know how to express my feeling," she added, referring to the story of Female Generals of the Yang Family.

"I think today's performance has a very high level. When I was studying in China, I used to watch Peking Opera on TV, but surprisingly I'm watching this high level performance in Lithuania today," said Edmundas, a local audience, also in mandarin Chinese.

"History is very important. Through this performance, we can see part of China's history, and it's very important," he added.
