The gala, which usually includes songs, traditional operas, comedies, talk shows and acrobatics, will be broadcast live on Feb. 4 via multiple TV and Internet channels.

This year's Spring Festival (Chinese Lunar New Year) falls on Feb. 5.
Yes, I am expecting an excellent Gala for the celebration of the new year! At the same time I do wish there is nice improvement on language lesson of the top level entertainment program in China! ( The CCTV has great influence on the young generation on learning. More TV shows should hint students how to do independent thinking instead of always repeating others' words! ) We Chinese should learn advanced ‘technology and skill’ from foreign culture and enrich our native language vocabulary and improve speaking style! This is urgent requirement of the new era! Or we will lose in the international culture market which kind of failure can't be measured by banknotes! :time::L
