Photo Coverage: First Look at Shanghai Ballet's ECHOES OF ETERNITY at ENO

Shanghai Ballet Company's Echoes of Eternity, a powerful, moving exploration of love and loss, is currently playing the English National Opera through 21 August 2016. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the dancers in action below!

The Song of Everlasting Regret is a legendary poem in the canon of Chinese literature, a favourite from the 8th-century Tang dynasty. This year, it will be brought to life by the world-renowned Shanghai Ballet. It tells the tale of the romance between Emperor Xuanzong and Yang Guifei, his beloved imperial concubine - a story of love, conflict and ultimately, tragedy.

Echoes of Eternity is a co-production between the world-renowned Shanghai Ballet and the Shanghai Grand Theatre, featuring choreography by Patrick de Bana that brings the romance of 8th-century China firmly into the present day. This is a powerful, moving exploration of love and loss, a dance extravaganza that's poetry in motion.

These performances are part of the Shanghai Season at the London Coliseum, a unique collaboration between Shanghai Opera and Shanghai Ballet companies.
