“Jews in Shanghai” is an epic musical about war and peace, darkness and brightness, love and death that was first staged in September last year. In 1941, a ship fully loaded with Jews berths at a wharf along the Bund in Shanghai. They have escaped the Nazi persecution. Though the war brought the world pain and separation, in the darkness, the gleam of Shanghai lit the world. The hanghainese and Jewish people forged a profound friendship, fighting together against the fascists. The story gets romantic when a young Jewish man, Sterne, falls in love with a Shanghainese girl, Lin Yilan. The famous musical education professor Zhou Xiaoyan has been invited as an art adviser.
