Bejart ballet comes to Beijing
By Chen Jie for China Daily

The year 2005's first thrilling news for dance fans in Beijing is Bejart Ballet Lausanne is returning and Maurice Bejart himself will tour with the company. It is the legendary choreographer's first visit to China.

Chinese audiences should not forget Bejart Ballet Lausanne's Beijing debut in November 2001.

Then they performed "Ballet for Life," an intensely moving work which draws inspiration from the lives of Freddie Mercury, member of the famous band Queen and Bejart's former principal dancer, Jorge Donn, both of whom died of AIDS.

I wrote a features piece last Sunday on the Bejart Ballet Lausanne's tour to Hong Kong in the South China Morning Post. The link below is for paid subscribers. Next week the Bejart Ballet will tour Shanghai and Beijing. Their month-long Asian tour, which began in South Korea, will finally end in Taipei.
