Shanghai Ballet's The Butterfly Lovers

Sometimes called "the Chinese Romeo and Juliet," the story of the The Butterfly Lovers has been told for centuries. Zhu is disguised as a boy when she first meets Liang, and a fast friendship forms between the two. The smitten Zhu eventually reveals her true identity, and finds her affections returned—but an arranged marriage and an angry family threaten to keep the lovers apart.

The Shanghai Ballet captures both the passion of young love and the tranquility of nature in their performance of the classic tale. Choreographer Xin Lili and the company's dancers enact the tragic romance with only the music, their bodies, and appropriate footwear.
