"It’s crazy," the show's librettist, Li Kui-ming, told the Times. Li has taken over the lease of the Sunbeam Theater, where the opera is shown. 

Li had previously written an opera about Mao and told the Times he saw similarities between Mao and Trump. 

“This is the part where most old men will do some crazy things, at the age of 72,” he said. “Chairman Mao and Donald Trump, they are similar. They are arousing a revolution by neglecting the government and neglecting everybody and doing what they think.”

The show's opening run was sold out, the newspaper reported, but another one is scheduled for next year. Li told the Times he hopes to one day bring it to the U.S. 

“One day I want to show the opera to the real Donald Trump and make him laugh,” he said.
