After several months of preparations, in the beginning of October, the time had come to travel to Brazil. For the ensemble of the Jingju Theater Company of Beijing, as well as for the local audience, it was a premiere. The first tour in Latin America ever became true thanks to the initiative of the director of the ensemble, Mr. Li Enjie, and the generous support of the Beijing Municipal Government. Beforehand we had to fear that the visas would not be issued on time and were worried that the props, which had been sent to Brazil by ship months before, would not be released by the customs just in time. Luckily in the end, everything went smoothly.
