Wang Yabin is an extraordinary figure of modern Chinese dance. According to the critic of the Financial Times, Chinese traditions and contemporary endeavours complement each other in his productions in the manner of yin and yang, creating a perfectly harmonious whole. The Moon Opera is a dance drama in which extreme emotions, jealousy, love, talent and rejection fuse to create high-voltage, fiery theatrical moments.

Presented in 2015, the choreography is based on the best-selling novel of Bi Feiyu, the knowledgeable explorer of the female psyche. The central figure is an actress who is about the perform the lead role of Flying to the Moon, an essential work of traditional Chinese opera, and finds that theatre and reality, the character performed and her real personality, slowly become indistinguishable.
