The DPRK adaptation of the Chinese opera masterpiece "A Dream of Red Masions", which was staged across China, was the common fortune of the two countries, a DPRK newspaper reported Friday.

The traditional friendship between China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) would be consolidated and developed constantly, an article in the Rodong Sinmun newspaper said.

More than 30 performances of the opera were staged in 12 Chinese cities, including Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai from May 7 to July 18. The theaters were completely packed every time, the article said.

Many audiences from Japan, the United States and Canada flew to watch the opera. Some of them even followed the troupe during its tour around China to watch the opera again and again.

The article said the Chinese media began to cover the troupe's activity once they arrived in China, showing the Chinese party and government attached great importance to the DPRK-China friendship.

The performance was not only a cultural communication, but also a proof of the traditional friendship and solidarity between the two countries, the newspaper said.

After the DPRK opera "Flower girl" was staged in China in 2008, many artistic groups such as Pyongyang Art Group and DPRK Film Orchestra visited China in 2009, the "Year of DPRK-China Friendship".
