The Golden Lotus Premieres in the GTA in First Tour Outside of Asia
Touring outside of Asia for the first time, Beijing Dance Theater's The Golden Lotus makes its GTA debut at Mississauga's Living Arts Centre with three dynamic performances. The contemporary ballet tells the story of a 1500s era Chinese "Madame Bovary" named Pan JinLian ("Golden Lotus") who's in love with three very different men - the tiger slayer Wu Sung, the powerful Xi Men Qin, and her humble peddler husband Wu Da - which inevitably leads to her tragic downfall.
The production is helmed by the dynamic creative team comprised of acclaimed director and choreographer Wang Yuanyuan, set and costume designer Timmy Yip who is best known for his work on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, with music by composer Du Wei with advisement by Chen Qigang, the musical director of the 2008 Beijing Olympics' Opening Ceremony.
