The Dance Drama The Dancing Girl of Tongque Platform

During the Three Kingdoms period (200-265 AD), the dancing girl Zheng Feipeng and the drummer Wei Sinu had been in love with each other since their childhood. But the pretty girl was later bullied by Cao Cao, his son Cao Pi as well as the general officials. Zheng Feipeng was sentenced to death because of resistance, and Wei Sinu, who had both eyes dug out, saw his lover off by beating the drum. At last, Feipeng cut off a strand of hair, put it by the side of Wei Sinu and headed to the place of execution to the beats of the drum.
