Chapterhouse Theater Company: Jane Eyre

Date: March 22-24 - 7:30 pm

Venue: Nine Theater, Beijing

Adapted from Charlotte Bronte's classic novel, Chapterhouse Theatre Company presents one of the greatest romances of English literature. This beautiful story of undying love is brought alive under a summer sky at some of the most exquisite open-air venues in the UK and Ireland.

In the Winter of 1999, Chapterhouse Theatre Company took its first steps toward becoming one of a number of touring theater companies specializing in performing under the stars and at some of the most beautiful gardens the UK had to offer. The very first performance was at Herstmonceux Castle where the company performed Romeo and Juliet by the moat of the beautiful Tudor building. It was the start of an incredible 17 years which has seen the company go from strength to strength changing and adapting to new audiences and challenges every year but holding the same principals of producing warm, traditional and hopefully magical theater in magical surroundings.

A Musical Night of Hong Kong Cinema

Date: April 1 - 7:30 pm

Venue: Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center

The generation of Chinese people who were born in the 70s and 80s had become a backbone of society. They grew up during the golden age of Hong Kong films and cinema. The chivalry, the picturesque village and city life, and love and romance that were common themes have been wrapped into the hearts and memories of this whole generation. This Concert brings out this nostalgia and plays music from many of these classical Hong Kong films. China Film Symphony Orchestra is one of the national outstanding orchestras founded earliest in the People's Public of China. Over sixty years, along with the development of China's film and television music arts, the orchestra has performed music for nearly two thousand films, TV dramas, documentaries and special films. The orchestra also performed music in more than 40 countries and regions and played symphonic concerts, operas and ballets with international conductors, composers, musicians and dancers for many times to promote Chinese music development and international cultural exchange.
