A dance-theater work from renowned Chinese choreographer Yang Liping is thrilling the Big Apple.

"It was absolutely fabulous, visually extraordinary, and it's unlike anything I've seen before," Jennifer, an editor at a local New York magazine, told China Daily after seeing the debut of Under Siege at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York on Thursday.

"The dancers were so athletic, their moves were so beautiful, and the story was so dynamic. And I was never bored," she added.

Under Siege, which explores themes of war, power, betrayal and passion, made its US premiere Aug 8-10 as part of the Mostly Mozart Festival.
