China’s favourite ballet done by its best company – until the Bolshoi
or Kirov come to town, this is the one to see. Founded on December 31 in
1959, the National Ballet of China is China's
only national ballet company. Its dancers and musicians are all
graduates from professional dance academies and music conservatories
across China. For the past five decades, the National Ballet of China
has introduced numerous outstanding classical and contemporary ballet
works to Chinese audiences, while also placing great importance on combining classical ballets with Chinese culture.
