Stockholm (People's Daily) - With an enlivened opening performance “Year of the Pig Brings Happiness,” a group of Chinese students and scholars in Stockholm, Sweden treated audiences to a Spring Festival Gala that featured chorus singing, cross-talk, and stage plays.

For the Gala’s closing number, the Chinese performed “New Year story from my hometown” to express love for their country, hometowns, and families.

The Gala performance drew an audience of more than 1,200, the largest Sweden has ever recorded for such an event. Officials from the Ministry of Education in Stockholm along top representatives from many Swedish universities were in attendance.

For the non-Chinese speaking audience members, the performances featured English subtitles.

‘The New Year Gala hosted by the Chinese students and scholars in Stockholm is a display of good-sprit from those who work and study in Sweden, and has served as a bridge for 11 years, said Gui Congyou, Chinese Ambassador to Sweden, during his address at the event.
