Based on John Strauss' visit to the US in Protected content , this drama is created with reference to Music, Art and Life—Li Lanqing's Essays on Music.

John Strauss, the famous composer and conductor in Europe, toured in the US at the invitation from broker Gilmore. Unexpectedly, he met with great success in the grand concert which attracted 10,000 audiences. Strauss and his music become popular with more and more people, and spread the fame in the world. This drama will take a variety of artistic expression forms, and bring together music, dance, drama and other art forms. This drama will not only resound classic songs created by Strauss (such as G'schichten Aus Dem Wienerwald, An Der Schone Blauen Donau and Fruhlingsstimmen), but also follow the approach in combination of multimedia tools and stage scene so as to unveil what John Strauss sees and hears in his visit to the US.
