1971 ... People's Republic of China ... Ballet

... ballet, musical, operetta paegent  about China coming to the aid of North Korea during the Korean War (or as the Chinese refer to it: War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea) (or as the DPRK likes to say: Fatherland Liberation War!!*

This might have been a warm-up for the famous 'Red Detachment of Women' performed for president Nixon during his historic 1972 visit.

Last time I checked the United States and NATO do not have similarly staged re-enactments of the Fatherland Liberation War. Although the movie 'M.A.S.H.', which is set during the Korean War, does have a memorable theme song.
