'Butterfly Lovers' - inspired by The Butterfly Lovers - Chen Gang and He Zhanhao 

(On learning of the death of Shan-po, Ying-tai visits his grave and in her grief begs his tomb to open. There is a clap of thunder, the tomb breaks open and Yang-tai leaps into the grave, from which the two lovers emerge as butterflies and fly away together, finally reunited.)
