Shanghai Ballet: The White-haired Girl

Date: July 24-25 - 7:30 pm

Venue: Shanghai International Dance Center Grand Theater

The Shanghai Ballet's The White-haired Girl is one of China's most popular revolutionary-themed dance works. It was created in 1964 and made its premiere the following year. Now, the Shanghai Ballet has made an anniversary production of the classic and is bringing it back to the stage. It tells the story of Xi'er, the daughter of a poor farmer. To pay the debts of her family, she is sold to a landlord. After suffering immensely, she flees deep into the mountains, where she lives for many years without adequate food. Xi'er's hair turns white and she becomes known as the white-haired goddess, before finally being rescued by the Red Army.
