National Ballet of China Visits New York

National Ballet of China comes to the Koch Theater as part of the Lincoln Center Festival. New Yorkers have chances to view two well-known performances "Peony Pavilion" and "The Red Detachment of Women" (July 8 -12).

Based on Ming dynasty play  "Peony Pavilion” is a love story that advances through dreams and visions and across the boundaries between life and death. This story of passion pitted against impossible odds is one of the most famous love stories in all of Chinese literature. 

"The Red Detachment of Women" dominated the stage during the Cultural Revolution and is a cornerstone of modern Chinese culture. (President Nixon was treated to a performance during his historic 1972 visit, a scene spoofed in John Adams’s opera “Nixon in China.”)
