Description: “DiNvHua” is the name of a Cantonese Opera premiered in 1957. The author is Tang Disheng. The background of this play is the sixth year of Chongzhen in the late Ming Dynasty. The opera tells the tragic love story between Princess Changping and Zhou Shixian.

Review: ‘粤剧帝女花VR版’ (Which translates as ‘The Flower Princess’) is a story about a fictional Chinese story about Princess Changping of the Ming Dynasty and her husband/lover, Zhou Shixian. In the end, they take poison on their wedding night in the palace garden where they first meet. To be fair to this app it is very well animated and every second of the 6 minutes is beautiful to look at and listen to. But it is not interactive in any way other than to move about and there is also a terrible branding promo built into it. It is free I suppose, so if you like the sights and sounds of a Chinese Opera do give this a go. All I can really say for sure is that it is a good job it was indeed free.
