The theatrical spectacle, We Found Love in Amoy, illuminated the stage at Beijing's Tianqiao Performing Arts Center on June 15 and 16, showcasing a harmonious collaboration between Banlam Grand Theater and Taiwan Godot Theater Company. This production intricately weaves together the narratives of three couples across different epochs, all linked by a piano nestled within the enchanting confines of the Gulangyu Piano Museum in Xiamen, Fujian province.

Xiamen, a picturesque coastal city renowned for its scenic beauty and historic significance, notably houses Gulangyu, an island that resonates with the melodies of Western classical music. The Gulangyu Piano Museum, boasting the world's largest collection of pianos, stands as a testament to the city's rich cultural heritage. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017, Gulangyu Island beckons travelers from across the globe, drawn to its unparalleled charm and musical legacy.
