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 Li Liuyi and choreographer Fei Bo have turned into an enchanting two-act fusion ballet that combines Western classical ballet with conventional Far East influences.
The show was a sell-out at Edinburgh Festival in 2011 and the piece has become a classic in National Ballet of China’s repertoire. With an eclectic post-modern score of Holst, Prokofiev and Debussy and lavish costumes and sets, The Peony Pavilion is a wonderful piece of modern ballet.
