In the course of two renowned Chinese Fstivals, the company will perform John Neumeier's "The Lady of the Camellias": First at the 14th Shanghai International Arts Festival, then at the 1st International Dance Festival at the National Centre for the Performing Arts.

About The Lady of the Camellias
Ballet in three acts by John Neumeier
 
Alexandre Dumas´ famous novel about the Maitresse Parisienne Marguerite Gautier portrays the real figure of the celebrated courtesan Marie Duplessis. It has served as a model for theatre, ballet and opera (La Traviata), and also to John Neumeier’s ballet, which was created for the Stuttgart Ballet and starring Marcia Haydée in 1978.
 
The author Dumas and the choreographer John Neumeier both focus the story on the love affair between Marguerite and Armand Duval, a young man from the Paris high society. The relationship is doomed to failure, not only because of Marguerite suffering from consumption, but also due to their social differences: After a short period of love and bliss, Monsieur Duval pays a visit to Marguerite, asking her to break up with his son and thus save Armand’s reputation and future in a society Marguerite can never become a part of. She sacrifices her love, hoping to secure the future for her beloved. Marguerite dies impoverished and desperate.
 
With his ballet, John Neumeier created a universal art piece of unique beauty and tragic depth. He chose music by Frédéric Chopin – the french composer who resorted to the same Paris salons at the same epoch as the literary main character, and who later died of consumption like her – and by this choice adds a very special quality to the ballet. Neumeier interweaves the music and the story with sure instinct and great emotional impact. In combination with the beautiful sets and costumes by Jürgen Rose, The Lady of the Camellias is a timeless masterpiece that goes straight to the heart.
