Before they part, Zhu reminds Liang to visit her residence later so he can propose to marry her "sister".
Liang and Zhu reluctantly part ways at the Changting pavilion. Months later, when Liang visits Zhu, he discovers that she is actually a woman.
They are devoted to and passionate about each other and they make a vow to the effect of "till death do us part".
The joy of their reunion is short-lived as Zhu's parents have already arranged for her to marry a wealthy merchant, Ma Wencai.
Liang is heartbroken when he hears the news and his health gradually deteriorates until he becomes critically ill.
He dies in office later as a county magistrate. On the day of Zhu's marriage to Ma, strong winds prevent the wedding procession from escorting the bride beyond Liang's grave, which lies along the journey.
Zhu leaves the procession to pay her respects at Liang's grave. She descends in bitter despair and begs for the grave to open up. Suddenly, the grave opens with a clap of thunder.
Without further hesitation, Zhu throws herself into the grave to join Liang. Their spirits emerge in the form of a pair of butterflies and fly away together, never to be separated again.

The premiere of the Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto featured year-old violinist Yu Lina and took place in Shanghai as part of the celebration of the 10th anniversary year of the founding of the People's Republic of China.
The concerto is in one movement, but is broken into seven distinct sections. Each tells a different part of the story of the Butterfly Lovers.
Some of the melodies come from the Chinese Opera of the same name or from traditional Chinese folk songs. The solo violin of the concerto is symbolic of Zhu Yingtai, the story's protagonist, and the cello part is symbolic of Liang Shanbo, her lover.
The concerto begins with two fifths in D by the harp, after which a solo flute opens with a flowery melody, setting the scene of the story.
A solo oboe enters with the strings in G major, after which the solo violinist enters and begins a simple melody. This melody comes from a Chinese folk song of the Yellow River Huanghe , and tells the story of Zhu Yingtai's childhood.
The solo violin is accompanied by a harp and other elements of the orchestra. On the road to Hangzhou for her studies, Zhu disguised as a man meets Liang for the first time; a cello solo intertwines with the violin, bringing a new, but still melodious theme and modulating to D major.
Yingtai tried her best to persuade her parents to send her to school, and finally was able to attend classes in disguise as a man.
On her way to the school from her hometown, Yingtai met Liang Shanbo, and they became best friends. Yingtai soon found herself falling in love with him, but she could not express her feelings to him without revealing her secret.
It was months later, when Shanbo finally realized that Yingtai was a woman. The two were extremely devoted to one another, and Shanbo decided to propose.
Filled with heartbreak and regret, Shanbo became critically ill, and died soon after. The most dramatic part of the story happens on the day of marriage, when the strangely strong winds prevent the wedding procession from passing the bridge where Shanbo's grave was.
He was confident that no school would admit a girl. But Zhu was resourceful. She disguised herself as a boy and managed to get admission into a school in the city of Hangzhou, where her aunt lived.
Every morning she would put on her disguise and go to school. There was a boy named Liang in her class. The two were drawn to each other, and in course of time became good friends.
They study together for three years, during which their relationship strengthens. When the two part, Zhu offers to arrange for Liang to marry her 16 year-old fictitious sister.Liang Zhu (chinesisch 梁祝; auch: Butterfly Lovers - Die Schmetterlings-Liebenden) ist eine bekannte chinesische Volkssage.
