The Australian Ballet’s ninth China tour marks international debut of David McAllister’s lavish production of The Sleeping Beauty | 澳大利亚芭蕾舞团第九次中国巡演 David McAllister最新作品《睡美人》国际首演

11-28 OCTOBER 2018

The Australian Ballet will tour to Beijing, Nanjing and Shanghai in October 2018. The 2018 China Tour, The Australian Ballet‘s ninth tour to China, marks the international debut of Artistic Director David McAllister’s dazzling production of The Sleeping Beauty, which is sure to enchant audiences in Beijing and Shanghai, while the company will present the delightful, enduring romance of Maina Gielgud’s Giselle to audiences in Nanjing.

The Australian Ballet has a long and proud history of touring to China. In 1980 it was the first international ballet company to visit China following the Cultural Revolution. Since then, The Australian Ballet has completed eight highly acclaimed tours to China, most recently in 2015. As a result, the company has developed strong relationships with resident Chinese ballet companies, including ex-change programs for dancers and those working behind-the-scenes.

Opera Australia in partnership with XDR Cultural Promotions and Poly Theatre Management Co. Ltd. present |澳大利亚歌剧团将携《蝴蝶夫人》完成首次中国巡演
Madama Butterfly
It’s a love story as old as time.
4-26 OCTOBER 2018
Enchanted by the beauty of the east, the American sailor Pinkerton takes a young geisha for his wife. The innocent Butterfly falls helplessly, hopelessly in love.
But every ship must return to its shore, and Pinkerton returns home, leaving Butterfly behind.
Music of impossible beauty traces this story from the lover’s first, rapturous embrace to the intense, powerful finale.
Experience the stunning elegance of this legendary production. Sensuous silken gowns flutter across wooden platforms. Flame dances on water. Cherry blossoms fall from the sky as we wait, with bated breath, alongside the faithful Butterfly.Presented by Opera Australia in partnership with XDR Cultural Promotions and Poly Theatre Management Co. Ltd, Oxenbould’s much loved production of Puccini’s hit opera will return to the stage once more this October for a tour consisting of eight performances across four Chinese cities: Tianjin, Qingdao, Shenzhen and Zhuhai.

Having previously toured productions to Taipei, Tokyo and Edinburgh, the upcoming China visit will be Opera Australia’s first multi-city international tour
