Kim Jong Il, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), watched opera "The Dream of the Red Chamber" which was based on a Chinese ancient classic, the official Rodong Sinmun daily said on Monday.

Kim extended satisfaction over the scenario and performance of the opera, an important event run under the "Year of DPRK-China Friendship," saying the successful recreation of the opera was "a clear proof of the validity and vitality of the literary and art idea of the Worker's Party of Korea."

He also noted the importance of "combining the innovative view of the 21st century with the mode of creation and work-style displayed in the 1970s," urging the DPRK people to "bring about an exceptional creative upswing" in the country.

The performance was given at the Hamhung Grand Theatre in the capital city of the South Hamgyong Province. But the report didn't give the date of the opera.

DPRK artists played the opera "The Dream of the Red Chamber" in 1960s. The Phibada (Blood of Sea) Opera Troupe recreated the opera this year for the "Year of DPRK-China Friendship." Kim Jong Il reportedly watched the rehearsal of the opera in March.
