backstage pt.3


A day after, Shangbo in his dorm room, is ill and tossing and turning with conflicting feelings. Madam Meng, the busybody visits him and poses a riddle which he fails to understand. She tells him that Yingtai confessed her identity to her and Shangbo, realising the fool he is, jumps out of bed and makes his journey to see Yingtai. He sings of the love that awaits him at the end. He finally arrives after the long journey and is greeted by Yingtai. Shangbo and Yingtai lay eyes on each other as man and woman for the first time. He is dumbstruck. She reveals how happy is is to see him but also reveals that he's a day late. Her father has arranged her marriage. Shangbo, affected, coughs into his handkerchief only to find his blood stain on it. Together, they sing their farewell song. Shangbo runs off with Yingtai calling after him.

Great shot! I saw the show tonight. You weren't around after the show. Wanted to say Hi to you. I manage to take 3 snapshots swiftly. Not clear though, but the clearest of the three was the one of you!
