Beijing Dance Theater (BDT) presents the North American premiere of The Golden Lotus - or ‘Jin Ping Mei’ - the contemporary ballet adaptation of China’s most notorious banned novel, on stage September 21 & 22, 2017 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Forbidden in China for the past 700 years, the Vancouver presentation marks the first time this controversial work of corruption and eroticism will be performed outside of Asia. Hailed by the New York Times as “tightly choreographed, beautifully designed and musically rich”, the production team of Chinese luminaries, coupled with the exquisite artistry of the 28-member company will transport audiences into the story’s dark and intriguing underworld.
