Ballet Soul of Crane

The critically-acclaimed ballet, Soul of Crane, is one of the must-see productions of the National Ballet of China.

Inspired by the real-life story of Xu Xiujuan, a woman who devoted her life to protecting red-crowned cranes and died saving a crane trapped in a swamp in Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province, the ballet eulogizes Xu’s kindness, devotion and the precious harmony between mankind and nature.
