The Opera Xiao Erhei’s Marriage

During the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression, Xiao Erhei, who was head of the militiamen in Liujiajiao Village, an anti-Japanese base area in southeastern Shanxi Province, fell in love with Xiao Jin, a local village girl. Xiao Erhei’s father Er Zhuge and Xiao Qin’s mother San Xiangu, both feudal and superstitious, managed to prevent them from getting married. The local ruffian Jin Wang made the situation messier by stirring up troubles. Xiao Erhei and Xiao Qin aren’t frightened by the slanders and frame-ups from the feudal force. Instead, they fought back firmly and won at last.
