National Ballet of China — The Peony Pavillion at the Sadler's Wells

The 16th century epic, The Peony Pavilion, is one of the most enduring love stories in Chinese literature. Originally performed as a Kunqu Opera in a 20-hour cycle, director and production designer Li Liuyi, as well as choreographer Fei Bo have redrawn it into a sublimely enchanting and pioneering two act fusion ballet that combines Western style choreography with traditional Chinese influences.

★★★★ "A captivating original" --The Guardian

Premiering in 2008, the work has become a gem in National Ballet of China’s repertoire, and has received outstanding acclaim internationally. With an eclectic post-modern score that references Holst, Prokofiev and Debussy, and ethereal costuming, it is a sumptuous feast for the eyes and ears.

Part of Out of Asia 2 season at the Sadler's Wells.

Out of Asia 2 features a range of works by five dance companies from across China and Taiwan, as well as four independent choreographers from China, Japan, Indonesia and India, in a special collaboration with artist Choy Ka Fai, originally from Singapore.
