National Ballet of China — The Peony Pavilion
The 16th century epic, The Peony Pavilion, is one of the most enduring love stories in Chinese literature. Originally performed as a Kunqu Opera in a 20-hour cycle, director Li Liuyi and choreographer Fei Bo have redrawn it into a sublimely enchanting two-act fusion ballet that combines Western classical ballet with conventional Far East influences.
- ★★★★ "“Ravishing. One of the most stunning-looking productions you are ever likely to see"
- DAILY TELEGRAPH
A sell-out at Edinburgh Festival in 2011, the piece has become a gem in National Ballet of China's repertoire. With an eclectic post-modern score of Holst, Prokofiev and Debussy and lustrous costumes and striking sets, The Peony Pavilion is a lavish feast for the eyes and ears.
- ★★★★★ "Exquisite. A luminous fusion of Western and Chinese traditions beautifully danced"
