The Shanghai Ballet, under the direction of former principal dancer Xin Lili, has a 34-year history of performing classical Western ballet, contemporary dance, and folk-styled Chinese national ballet. "The Butterfly Lovers," often considered the Chinese equivalent to "Romeo & Juliet," is an audience favorite and features a full corps of graceful dancers, gorgeous costumes, and a touching story of love and loss.
