Thanks for the clarification Kevin. Here is the outline itinary from the NBT site:<P>A Christmas Carol China Tour - Guangzhou, Taiyuan, Beijing, Tianjin (Various venues) <BR>From 12 Dec 2000 to 23 Dec 2000. <P>Visit the website at <BR> <A HREF="http://www.pnpnews.demon.co.uk/nbttour/china.htm" TARGET=_blank>www.pnpnews.demon.co.uk/nbttour/china.htm</A> <P>The tour site is a bit rudimentary at the moment and some of the images don't work, but hopefully as the tour progresses they will get some useful info. up on the site. I hope it works as even if it's mainly glorified holiday snaps, it's a nice idea. <P>My guess is that, like Rambert, NBT will only undertake such a tour on a profitable basis ie the risks are for the promoters not the company. Which suggests that there is much demand for ballet in China. <P>

Yes, there's increasing demand for ballet in China, unlike here in Hong Kong. (ABT's season here wasn't a big commercial success, e.g., though it was an artistic triumph for the company and the local dance scene.) Dance Theatre of Harlem just toured China last month as well. The advantage of China is that it has the largest population in the world. But I still think that Tokyo is the ballet capital in Asia, if not in the world.<p>[This message has been edited by Kevin Ng (edited December 13, 2000).]

Azlan, Tokyo gets more touring from the world's top companies and stars than New York, e.g. And this year, I remember that the Japanese audiences have seen Vladimir Malakhov, Sylvie Guillem, Carlos Acosta, Svetlana Lunkina, Nicolas Le Riche etc. guesting with the Japanese companies. And I heard that Vladimir Malakhov gets paid far more in Japan than in New York, as the Japanese impresarios are very generous financially.<P>Their visiting companies this year include the Kirov (4 weeks), La Scala, New York City Ballet etc. Last summer there were several galas including the World Ballet Festival which featured many of the top names in the business.<p>[This message has been edited by Kevin Ng (edited December 13, 2000).]

Thanks for the info, Kevin. So, I guess it is the high demand and appreciation that ballet gets in Tokyo that makes it a serious contender for the top city for ballet.<P>I wonder how many other cities there are like that.

Kevin - that is very interesting. I never realized it. I would like to ask how is the ballet doing amongst the population? I mean how is ballet doing in a national company in Japan? With Japanese home grown talent?<P>Maybe this should be a separate thread......<p>[This message has been edited by Basheva (edited December 14, 2000).]

The NBT China diary is taking shape with snaps of class, rehearsals and local visits. Not all the photos work, but it's worth a look. Days 1-4 are up now.<P> <A HREF="http://www.pnpnews.demon.co.uk/nbttour/china.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.pnpnews.demon.co.uk/nbttour/china.htm</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited December 14, 2000).]
