Hofesh Shechter Company: Grand Finale

Date: March 30 - April 1 - 7:30 pm

Venue: Shanghai International Dance Center Grand Theater

Internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter's latest work, Grand Finale, is a spectacularly bold and ambitious new piece featuring 10 dancers and six musicians.

Grand Finale is at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy. Filtering this irrepressible spirit, Shechter creates a vision of a world in free fall: part gig, part dance, part theater and wholly original. The company's exceptional ensemble of dancers comes from 8 different countries. They are Chien-Ming Chang, Frederic Despierre, Rachel Fallon, Mickael Frappat, Yeji Kim, Kim Kohlmann, Erion Kruja, Merel Lammers, Attila Ronai, Diogo Sousa with Associate Director Bruno Guillore.

China NCPA Orchestra in Chamber: Four Seasons and More from Baroque

China NCPA Orchestra is the resident orchestra of the National Centre for the Performing Arts. Established in March 2010, the orchestra consists of highly accomplished musicians from around the world, who have performed in more than a dozen opera productions presented by its home venue each year as well as in ballets and regular orchestral concerts in its own season. With a notably busy schedule, the young ensemble has fast established itself as one of the most adventurous and dynamic orchestras in the country.

The NCPA Orchestra demonstrates an abiding commitment to the highest level of artistic excellence and takes pride in its long-term collaborations with the finest musicians of our time. With its commitment to education and outreach activities, the orchestra has presented a series of Weekend Concerts at its home venue since its establishment. With selected program and accessible ticket prices, these concerts have become extremely popular with audiences new to classical music. Current plans in the repertoire include a new series highlighting the Beethoven Symphony, led by Chief Conductor, Lyu Jia. In addition, the Orchestra frequently initiates wide-reaching educational projects in association with educational institutions across the city.
