On November 25 and 26, the 10th anniversary commemorative performance of Beihang's original large-scale musical "Luo Yang" was staged in the gymnasium of Beihang Shahe Campus.

The musical "Luo Yang" is an original musical written, directed and performed by teachers and students of Beihang University, which was created to commemorate Comrade Luo Yang, chief commander of the J-15 carrier aircraft project, alumnus of Beihang of Class 1978 who passed away in the line of duty. The musical has been selected as one of the "Backbone of the Republic - Science Masters Publicity Project" jointly organized by CAST and Ministry of Education. Over the past decade, the musical "Luo Yang" has been successfully performed for nearly 40 times in colleges and universities, enterprises, primary and secondary schools across the country, attracting more than 200,000 audiences, covering cities including Shenyang in Liaoning Province, Wuhan in Hubei Province, and receiving widespread praise from all walks of life.

On November 25, 2012, Comrade Luo Yang unfortunately passed away in the line of duty. He stayed committed to the mission of serving the country through aerospace endeavors and has made outstanding contributions to the development of China's aviation industry. In the eleven years since his departure, his noble spirit has been integrated into the blood of thousands of young people. Beihang faculties and students will continue to fulfill the will of the hero and make their own contributions to build China into a nation with strong aviation power.

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the premiere of the original large-scale musical "Luoyang", in order to carry out the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instruction that party members and cadres should learn from the outstanding qualities and valuable spirits of Luoyang, Beihang has organized a series of commemorative activities, including the 10th anniversary-tour of the musical, the symposium on the creation of the musical, and a to-be-filmed documentary about it.
