The company's history dates back to the 1950s and thanks to Poetic Dance: The Journey of a Legendary Landscape Painting, it has gained wide popularity among young Chinese audiences. Many amateur dancers and fans of the show have emulated the choreography from the production and shared videos on social media.

On the back of this success, a vinyl record featuring music from the dance drama was released by the company.

Like the 11-meter-long scroll painting, which was completed by Wang when he was just 18 years old, the music at the concert will depict people's lives and attempt to present the scenery of that time, from mountains and rivers to temples and pavilions.

Ancient Chinese musical instruments, such as bianzhong (chime bells), konghou (Chinese harp) and xun (a globular, vessel flute), will be featured in the concert, taking audiences back to ancient China. They will be blended with Western musical instruments, such as trumpet and saxophone, through creative musical arrangement.
