The opera, with more than 400 years of history, was presented in a single show and hailed by the public and experts.

"The Opera Wu astonished the Cuban audience with its unique show such as the change of masks, when an actor in second fraction changes masks, which almost seems as magic," the National Information Agency (AIN) said.

AIN said that the Dragon Dance was also impressive, which was performed by nine dancers, who did spectacular acrobatics.
