On the evening of July 4, 2018, planned by the Propaganda Department of the Chengdu Municipal Committee and the Wenguang New Bureau of Chengdu City, the Chengdu Peking Opera Research Institute jointly established by the Propaganda Department of the Ziyang Municipal Committee, the Lezhi County Committee of the Communist Party of China and the Lezhi County People's Government of the People's Government of the People's Republic of China, the National Art Foundation of the People's Republic of China join The City Art Palace premiered. Thousands of audiences came to see the new work.

At 7:30 p.m., as the curtain opened, marshal Chen Yi accompanied the "heavy snow on the pine, the pine is straight and straight." In the poem "When the snow melts and the pine is noble", Chen Yi Huichuan opens and a number of vivid characters appear, bringing the audience back to the special historical period of 1959. Carefully choreographed Arias and interlocking plots lead the audience to follow the melodious melody and feel Marshal Chen Yi's story of opposing grandiosity and advocating truth from facts in his hometown in winter 1959. With Marshal Chen Yi standing in the center of the stage, the scene atmosphere was pushed to a climax when the poem "Qingsong" appeared in the background of a red sun. The enthusiastic audience, with tears in their eyes, expressed their respect and thanks to the actors with a burst of warm applause and cheers.

Since its creation in 2016, Chen Yi Huichuan, a newly-edited modern Peking Opera, has changed its manuscript, revised and refined the script repeatedly. After two years of preparation, it finally met the audience. With the strong support of the Propaganda Department of the Chengdu Municipal Committee and the Municipal Wenguang New Bureau, the Chengdu Peking Opera Research Institute, as the main creative team, has overcome the difficulties of insufficient funds and limited personnel. It has organized several creative teams and actors to work in Marshal Chen Yi's hometown, Lezhi County, and organically integrated what they saw, heard and felt into the creation of the repertoire. With the special historical background of 1959, Marshal Chen Yi, the founder of the People's Republic of China, as a Communist Party, showed a glorious image of forgetting the original intention, seeking truth from facts, seeking the well-being of the people, seeking the rejuvenation of the nation, upholding the truth and facing the reality with the artistic expression and language of Peking Opera. The play is close to life and grounded in spirit. The main creative team and actors carefully prepare and polish every scene, design and task, so that the whole play is full of inspiration. From the beginning, they firmly grasp the audience and make Marshal Chen Yi's revolutionary feelings for the people run through and admire people sincerely. Marshal Chen Yi's lines in Sichuan dialect, Sichuan Opera and the scenery of the residential buildings in Western Sichuan are all intertwined and reasonable, drawing the distance from the audience.

It is reported that the newly edited modern Peking Opera "Chen Yi Huichuan" will continue to hold a tour, bringing this brand-new and extraordinary national quintessence drama to more audiences, so that the masses can fully feel the charm of the national quintessence art.
