Hundred years ago, on the ancient Silk Route, a caravan formed by Arab merchants is marching along from the West. Guided by the merchant Hasang and supported by the folk people of Helan Mountain, the caravan passes through the desert and crosses the Yellow River after overcoming many difficulties, and finally reaches China's northern region and accomplished their mission. During the journey, the young man Narsu fell in love with a local-born girl named Hai Zhen. Their love bridges over the different religious and customs of two nationalities, and the young lovers finally take hands in marriage at the foot of Helan Mountain.

Created by the Yinchuan Art Troupe, dance drama The Moon Over the Helan Mountain is based on the folklore of Northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, which has a dense population of Hui people, one of China's ethnic minorities. The drama aims to show how different cultures can coexist harmoniously, through the unity of various ethnic minority groups. The drama was selected as one of the 10 masterpieces of China's stage art in 2009 and has been staged in Egypt, Qatar and Algeria.
