Shanghai Ballet Performs "The Butterfly Lovers"

Primary tabs

The extraordinary classical Shanghai Ballet company from China performs one of its signature ballets, The Butterfly Lovers. Based on an ancient legend often considered the Chinese equivalent of Romeo and Juliet, this tragic ballet tells of Zhu, a young woman who disguises herself as a man to pursue her studies, and her classmate Liang, with whom she falls in love even though she is betrothed to another. This heartbreaking tragedy is filled with luminous costumes, spectacular sets, and gorgeous choreography performed with exquisite skill by these gifted dancers.

Tickets costs $30 for seats in the Gold Section, or $22 for seats in the Silver Section, and are available online at, or through the box office at 607/431-2080.
