The script of The Romance of the Broken Mirror was well-structured, dramatically coherent and elegantly written. The Romance of the Broken Mirror is an opera that eulogizes the theme of love and devotion.
The Romance of the Broken Mirror is considered a challenging musical. The arias in this opera were written in rhythmical and rhymed poetry and the libretto were outstanding works of literature. They are demanding and dramatic in tone, generous in volume, flexible in tempo and luminous on top. It is also a drama with melodic singing, distinctive facial expressions, graceful hand gestures and body movements.
