One of the most famous propaganda ballets to have emerged from the Cultural Revolution, White-Haired Girl brought critical acclaim to the regional dance company in 1979. Since then, Shanghai Ballet has become one of the most pre-eminent international ballet companies in the world. Known for presenting ingenious interpretations of classical and contemporary repertoire, the ensemble under Xin Lili's artistic direction will enchant audiences with its exquisite performance of La Sylphide -- a romantic tale of a young man forever chasing an elusive, celestial being, only to encounter tragedy and heartache.
"The costumes were dazzling... Starting off in a low-key manner, the Shanghai Ballet ... built to a crescendo of rapidfire over-the-head lifts and tours en l'air at the sold-out ... Auditorium."
-- Dottie Ashley, The Post and Courier

The Shanghai Ballet, whose performance of The White-Haired Girl won them the Gold Medal of the Best Classical Dance Works of the 20th Century in China, has become one of the world's premier international ballet companies. Since its founding in 1979, many of the ensemble's brilliant and rising young dancers have won numerous awards in global and nationwide competitions.
Under the graceful and lyrical temperament of Artistic Director Xin Lili, the company performs one of its signature folk-infused -- The Butterfly Lovers, a classical Western masterwork that follows a young couple's ill-fated romance. Elegant choreography, beautiful costumes, expressive hand gestures and theatrical pantomime convey the story's bittersweet beauty and complement Shanghai Ballet's stunning classical technique.

The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company celebrates its 45th anniversary this season with a presentation of the choreographer's poignant and stunning Transparent Things. Lubovitch's lively work is based on the Pablo Picasso painting Family of Saltimbanques, which depicts a world of street performers and entertainers. Pairing the dreamily beautiful Debussy String Quartet in G minor with masterfully crafted performance art, Transparent Things is a lovely offering to unrepentant romanticism, realized through the deeply humanistic genius of "one of the ten best choreographer's in the world," says the New York Times.
