Choreography by Xin Lili
Music by Xu Jianqiang
Xin Lili, Artistic Director & Choreographer
The renowned grace and flawless technique of the Shanghai Ballet shines through in this storybook ballet. The Butterfly Lovers, a perfect blend of classical ballet and Chinese folk style, tells the story of Liang and Zhu, two classmates in love. The star-crossed lovers, like Western literature’s Romeo and Juliet, must transcend family disapproval and tragedy to be together. Shanghai Ballet enlivens this full-length ballet with their trademark dazzling sets and costumes that harken from Chinese landscapes, as well as precise classical movement, from their Russian-influenced training.
