Original work Dunhuang, choreographed by Fei Bo, Wang Sizheng and Wang Qi, will greet the audience on June 9 and 10. Premiered in 2017, the ballet piece was inspired by the creative team's trips to the Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang, Northwest China's Gansu province.

Onegin will be staged on June 13 and 14. Onegin, one of the world's greatest ballets based on Russian poet and playwright Alexander Pushkin's novel Eugene Onegin, was originally choreographed by John Cranko for Germany's Stuttgart Ballet in 1965. In 2008, Reid Anderson, artistic director of the Stuttgart Ballet, trained dancers of the National Ballet of China in Beijing and the piece was performed at the Tianqiao Theater the same year.

On June 18 and 19, the company will stage Giselle, one of its most popular ballet pieces since its debut in Beijing in 1960. Giselle was first performed in Paris on June 28, 1841. The National Ballet of China kept the beauty and romance of the original in its adaptation.
