In May when the production was announced and box-office sales kicked off, the tickets sold out for the premiere night within 28 hours.

The Shanghai-based Xinmin Evening News praised the play to be “a highly aesthetic new Kunqu Opera production, deeply rooted in the tradition, without losing relevance to the contemporary view of beauty”.
