New Swan Lake To Hit The Road

A new production of Swan Lake that has been making serious waves since its premiere last year in Shanghai is preparing to take the “unconventional blend of classical ballet and traditional Chinese acrobatics” on a major world tour including Russia, Japan, Germany, and the U.S. The production, which includes acrobatic feats worthy of Cirque du Soleil, is a complete reimagining of Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet, and even changes the storyline to make it more relevant to modern Chinese audiences.
