Dance dramas set to dazzle in Jiading

( chinadaily.com.cn ) 2019-08-06

Two dance dramas will be held at Shanghai Poly Grand Theatre in Shanghai's Jiading district in October, and two famous dancers – Yang Liping and Li Yugang – will offer up a pair of spectacular performances for audiences.

The Rite of Spring was written by Igor Fedorovitch Stravinsky more than 100 years ago, originally as a ballet, and it has attracted numerous top dancers throughout the century. A new version of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring by Chinese choreographer Yang Liping will give audiences a fresh perspective on the classic.
