San Francisco Ballet going to China

San Francisco Ballet will announce plans today for its first trip to China, including appearances in Shanghai, Suzhou and Beijing.

The three-week, three-city tour will begin Sept. 22 with a four-night appearance at the Shanghai Grand Theatre and conclude with performances at the Beijing Poly Theatre Oct. 1-3. The performances are part of official celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and the 30th anniversary of the establishment of official diplomatic relations between the United States and the People's Republic of China.

The foray to Asia capitalizes on the troupe's geographic location and the fame of Shanghai-born principal dancer Yuan Yuan Tan, a hero in her homeland, said Ballet Executive Director Glenn McCoy. "We have particular interest in developing relationships in Asia, being the biggest ballet company on the Pacific Rim," McCoy said. "And of course Yuan Yuan is a very big star in China, and we're delighted she will have this homecoming."
