Traditional Chinese culture and creative animation certainlywere on display at the 2016 Changsha International Comic and Animation Expo. The four-day expo, which wrapped up Monday, attracted more than 240 animation companies that brought their original animations, virtual reality films and videos, and cartoons—many of which integrate traditional Chinese culture.

“At Crossroad,” an animated opera featuring exquisite images and familiar arias, has a large youth fan-base and was a big draw at the event. The Peking Opera masterpiece is a story about chivalry, gratitude and revenge. The animated opera combines traditional opera arias with cartoons, and has inspired many young schoolers to take up studying opera.
