The Palace of Eternal Life on a Moonlit Night tells the poignant and moving story of Lady Yang, the imperial concubine, and emperor Ming of Tang dynasty, and is conducted by Yan Huichang, a national first-class conductor and artistic director of the orchestra, composed by the famous composer Jin Fuzai, and written by screenwriter Shi Jufang from Taiwan. As early as 2018, the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra had collaborated with Zhang Jun on Peony Pavilion, Long Life Palace. This marks the second collaboration between the two parties after a four-year hiatus. The Palace of Eternal Life is more like a musical theater production, with a relatively complete storyline. The aesthetics of lighting, costumes, and stage effects have all been elevated, providing the audience with a higher level of enjoyment.
