The National Ballet of China also prepared six works for the ballet season, including La Sylphide (The Sylph), El Testamento de Amelia (The Testament of Amelia), The Yellow River, The Four Seasons, La Chauve-Souris ( The Bat) as well as Don Quixote.
"As the only national ballet troupe in China, we have a history of more than half a century and great potential. Last year, we celebrated our 55th anniversary with a series of dance shows in China and throughout the world. For the upcoming performance season, we will certainly live up to audiences' expectations," Feng Ying, head of National Ballet of China, told Chinese journalists earlier this year.
