With the experience that an urban student Zheng Tianyu was sent by his father to a rural school to receive "special education" as the main line, the large children's drama - "Red Lanterns in the Mountain" describes the story that the urban student Zheng Tianyu and the rural left-behind children such as Tiedan and Zhao Gang had conflicts, concept collisions, helped each other, made progress together, and finally forged a profound friendship. Since its premiere in January 2013, "Red Lanterns in the Mountain" has been performed for more than 100 times, warmly welcomed by the majority of the audience, especially children and parents. In just two years, the drama has not only won the first prize of the "provincial transformed art troupes’ key drama selection", but also won the highest literary awards granted by the governments of Changchun City and Jilin Province   - Clivia Literary Award and Changbai Mountain Literary Award. “This is the first time for our province’s drama to be performed in Beijing since the cultural system reform”, said Zhou Gang, Director of the Literary Division of the Provincial Party Committee Propaganda Department. The drama not only represents the highest level of Jilin Province’s dramas, but also displays the latest result of our province’s cultural reform.
