Guangzhou Opera House said Wednesday that it will reopen on June 25 after a hiatus due to the COVID-19 outbreak, restaging "Marco Polo" as its first show.
"The show was highly-anticipated, and the tickets were sold out in a few minutes," said Chen Rui, assistant to the general manager of the opera house.
According to Chen, strict anti-virus measures have been imposed for the reopening.
The attendance rate will be brought under 30 percent for the sake of social distancing. Employees have taken nucleic-acid tests and infrared temperature detection devices have been installed.
The show, combining the legend of Marco Polo with an original Chinese-written opera, was produced by Guangzhou Opera House in 2018.
