Ottawa stages China-Canada co-produced dance drama Search
OTTAWA, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- A China-Canada co-produced dance drama named Search is put on stage in the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa Sunday afternoon to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and 49th anniversary of establishment of China-Canada diplomatic relationship.
