The three works for Theatertreffen in China, whether a new production based on history or an adaptation of masterpiece, impressed the audience the same way, i.e., all of them showcase the indefinite imagination of the directors. This shall thank to Germany’s open environment for theatre professionals, and more importantly, the vision and talent of the directors. If there is something that can exemplify for the Chinese in this field, then the key factor lies in oneself instead of the environment of the society.
