State councilor asks for better theater art


08:26, December 26, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor Liu Yandong encouraged Sunday more theater talents and better dramas in the country.

"The National Theater of China should transform itself to produce more excellent works and build a national brand," Liu said at a ceremony to mark the 70th founding anniversary of the National Theater of China (NTC).

Liu asked the NTC to "promote lofty ideals, spread core values and reflect real life," in a bid to upgrade the national brand to an international level.

China's largest state performing art organization, the NTC originated from the Yan'an Youth Art Theater in 1941. The current organization was founded on Dec 25, 2001, based on the China National Youth Theater and the China National Experimental Theater.

Liu called on the NTC to set an example for other art groups to boost development of the Chinese theater art.
