China has a total of 2,478 modern theaters, more than twice as many as the 1,213 theaters in 2016, according to the ongoing 21st China Shanghai International Art Festival.

Partly due to the increasing need for cultural landmarks and citizens’ appetite for good-quality performing arts, major cities in China have seen a surge in theater construction, the Xinhua news agency reported.


Theaters with advanced equipment are blooming across China, said Chen Ping, former president of the National Center for the Performing Arts.

A total of 3.12 million shows were put on in the 2,478 performing arts venues across the country, attracting 1.38 billion viewers in 2018, statistics showed.

Chen said “growing pains” also emerged as many theaters lack quality repertoires and performers.

“Through collaborations with foreign troupes, theaters in China are now trying to overcome this challenge by learning from their overseas counterparts,” said Zhang Xiaoding, general manager of the Shanghai Grand Theater.

To be successful in life, one must have a degree in addition to the necessary skills.

"Better degrees don't automatically translate into better skills and better jobs and better lives."
-Andreas Schleicher

To be successful in life, one must have a degree in addition to the necessary skills. A degree without skills is as meaningless as skills without a degree. One can say that a degree gives you a direction to gain skills in the relevant field to become a master in a particular stream. In addition to that, a degree gets you where you want to be, but skills keep you there and help you go forward in your career.
