The Chinese Railway Cultural and Art Troupe (CRCAT) recently unveiled their latest large-scale theater production Snowy Road at a special performance for media in Beijing.

The play was produced with the support of the National Arts Fund and represents the story of the construction of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway Line in the form of dance.

CRCAT have created several original stage plays in recent years, constantly exploring new themes and forms.

The show has won the support of individuals including the chief of the Expert Advisory Group of the Construction Headquarters of the former Qinghai-Tibet Railway, Zhang Luxin.

Snowy Road is the first realist work to be launched by CRCAT after the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. It is based on a grassroots level story and reflects the important instructions of President Xi Jinping, said officials.

The play expresses the affectionate friendship of three generations on the railway and includes authentic Tibetan elements with clear and distinct themes and emotions.

Snowy Road will be staged at the newly completed Erqi Theater in Beijing in May 2018. After a run in Beijing it is expected to tour along the railway line .
