The Rite of Spring

When: Oct 11 and 12, 7:30 pm

Where: Shanghai Poly Grand Theater

Known at the "Peacock Princess", choreographer Yang Liping reunites with Oscar-winning designer Tim Yip to create a unique take on Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring - utilizing the iconic score alongside original compositions inspired by traditional Tibetan music.

The Rite of Spring was written more than 100 years ago, originally as a ballet.

This riveting new production introduces Chinese and Tibetan notions of the cyclical nature of life, death and rebirth.

All Ice As "Ice Music" Concert

When: Nov 3, 7:30 pm

Where: Tianqiao Performing Arts Center, Beijing

The Norwegian composer Terje Isungset is a leading European percussionist with a career spanning more than two decades. Throughout his musical career, he has promoted an innovative and creative style, making use of the products of nature for musical instruments such as stones, pieces of wood and tree bark.

But the innovation for which he has perhaps become best known came in 1999 when he first used ice to make music. The early experiments prompted him to use ice to make his own versions of musical instruments. In 2001, he released his first studio album with ice as the main source of sound. Instruments used included the "iceophone", a xylophone-like instrument made using ice blocks, an ice horn, chimes, along with harps, cellos and guitars all carved out of ice.
