"I once visited many places in China to select operas for the Mexico Cervantes Art Festival, from 2001 to 2006," he said. "Wherever I went, the local operas and performances left a deep impression in my mind. Uproar in Heaven will give Colombian people a delightful surprise."

Osorio said the theater, an important member of the Silk Road International League of Theaters, will go on to strengthen communication and cooperation with Chinese artists, bringing more new works.
