The Central Opera House is a national opera house affiliated with the Ministry of Culture. In recent years, the Central Opera House has introduced and rehearsed a large number of world classic operas, "Women" was created to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the famous German composer Wagner. Wagner's position in the history of world opera is irreplaceable, and he has made the romantic opera to its peak. He has thoroughly reformed traditional operas and insisted that music must obey the principles of drama content. The reformed opera is called musical. Wagner's "The Ring of Nibelungen" and "Tristan and Isolde" are regarded as the epoch-making classic music, "Women" is the second part of "Nibelungen Ring". Yu Feng, dean of the Central Opera House, said, "In the creation of "Wu Shen", the Central Opera House strives to excavate and restore Wagner's profound musical connotation and spiritual essence."
