Shanghai Ballet: The Butterfly Lovers
For more than 30 years, the award-winning Shanghai Ballet has mesmerized audiences around the world with its diverse repertoire of classical Western ballet, contemporary dance, and folk-styled Chinese national ballet. 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.
