BEAUTY AND ROMANCE FROM CHINA
The Shanghai Ballet

Tickets: $45, $40, $25 | Children 12 and under, $10 any seat


For more than three decades, the prestigious The Shanghai Ballet has been dazzling audiences around the world with its unique repertoire of folk-infused Chinese ballet and classical Western masterworks. For the company’s Bronx debut, audiences will be treated to the Chinese folkloric equivalent of “Romeo and Juliet”—a poignant love story that dates to the Tang Dynasty. The Butterfly Lovers follows a young couple’s ill-fated romance through elegant choreography, splendid costumes, and evocative sets depicting the natural—and supernatural—worlds. The company’s masterfully trained dancers convey the story’s bittersweet beauty with expressive hand gestures and theatrical pantomime, evocative complements to their stunning classical technique.
