Scene I：By the Riverside
“By riverside, a pair of turtledoves are cooing; there is a maiden fair whom a young man is wooing”. Following the tweets of turtledoves, we travel through thousands of years and land on the bank of the beautiful river Tanhe. The ancient Book of Poetry is being sung here and there. A group of young girls are singing merrily and dancing gracefully among the mulberry trees. Here the young King Wu encounters a gorgeous girl named Ning’er and they fall in love soon.
Scene II ：Desperate Love by Tanhe
Enticed by Daji, King Zhou killed King Wu’s elder brother who was minced into pieces and made into meat cakes. King Zhou also threatened King Wu with the survival of his vassal state and coerced him into casting the Four-goat Square Zun. To save her lover and the people of Zhou, Ning’er sacrificed herself as a substitute of King Wu. By the riverside of Tanhe, their beautiful love ended in despair.

When the Deer Terrace pavilion was completed, King Wu paid tribute to King Zhou with the Four-goat Square Zun.
