Related: Shanghai Ballet, University of Minnesota, Northrop

The renowned grace and flawless technique of the Shanghai Ballet shines through in this storybook ballet. The Butterfly Lovers, a perfect blend of classical ballet and Chinese folk style, tells the story of Liang and Zhu, two classmates in love. The star-crossed lovers, like Western literature's Romeo and Juliet, must transcend family disapproval and tragedy to be together. Shanghai Ballet enlivens this full-length ballet with their trademark dazzling sets and costumes that harken from Chinese landscapes, as well as precise classical movement, from their Russian-influenced training.

Watch a preview below!

Tickets are $42, $59, and $70. The Shanghai Ballet will take place at the Orpheum Theatre, tickets can be bought here. There is also a free performance preview on November 12th at 6:15 - 7:00, where the audience can gain insight into the performance at an in-depth conversation led by local dance aficionados about the dance company and the evening's program.
