After touring the country, dance drama Tsangyang Gyatso is set to return to Beijing's Mingzu Theater on Thursday night, Ding Wei, president and director of the China Ethnic Song and Dance Ensemble, announced on Wednesday.

The dance drama, which focuses on the story of real-life Tibetan musician and poet Tsangyang Gyatso (1683-1706), became a hit after its debut on December 27, 2015.

The poems and songs of Tsangyang Gyatso, the sixth Dalai Lama, have become very popular not only in modern-day Tibet, but all across the entire nation. 

"The story depicts him as an ordinary person," Ding said in a statement for the troupe's ongoing Spring Performance Season.

"The stage production will focus on his feelings toward his hometown, family and romance."
