Musicals, dance and concerts, among other performances by art troupes from 11 countries, including Russia, the United States, France and Denmark, are being staged at the ongoing New Classic Arts Festival at the Tianqiao Performing Arts Center in Beijing through December. The festival started on Oct 20, with shows by the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theater.

Highlights will include performances by YL Male Voice Choir, formerly the Helsinki University Chorus, the oldest Finnish language choir, on Nov 11, featuring works from Jean Sibelius, Juuso Vanonen and Veljo Tormis; the clown-act duo from the US, Acrobuffos, which will bring the circus-style show Air Play on Nov 18; the Russian National Ballet's Kostroma, a folklore-inspired show, on Nov 24; and Germany's Familie Floz that will present Teatro Delusio (The Stage) over Dec 21-24.

In addition, the well-known musicals Jersey Boys and The Producers will also be staged during the festival.

In its second year, the annual festival also holds workshops and seminars to enable audiences to get close to the participating artists.
