The award-winning Shanghai Ballet has mesmerized audiences around the world with its diverse repertoire of classical ballet, contemporary dance, and Chinese ballet for more than 30 years. One of just five ballet companies in China, the Shanghai Ballet has claimed a predominant position and distinguished itself with its unique and expressive dance language.
The Butterfly Lovers, one of the company’s signature titles, is an audience favorite and features a full corps of graceful dancers, gorgeous costumes, and a touching story of love and loss.
“The costumes were dazzling ... the Shanghai Ballet ... built to a
crescendo of rapid-fire over-the-head lifts and tours en l’air at the
sold-out ... Auditorium.” - Charleston Post and Courier
