Eastern Promises: Edinburgh Festival 2011 Looks At Asia (And Asia Looks Back)

This year’s EIF “will feature the National Ballet of China performing the classic Chinese love story The Peony Pavilion, combining western ballet forms and Chinese traditional music. Shakespeare will also loom large, with Seoul’s Mokhwa Repertory Company weaving The Tempest into fifth-century Korean chronicles” and a Peking Opera Hamlet. And Tim Supple will stage a new version of The Thousand and One Nights with an all-Arab cast.
