National Ballet of China was founded in December of 1959. All of National Ballet of China’s outstanding artists come from professional academies. During decades of care and support from all social sectors, the company has never ceased strengthening its ballet foundations, which started with Russian ballet, continuously enriched by works of various different schools and styles.
The company has a repertoire of more than 200 ballets, includes world classics like Swan Lake, Don Quixote, Giselle, Carmen, Onegin, Firebird, The Little Mermaid, La Bayadère, Cinderella and Jewels as well as original creations like The Red Detachment of Women, The New Year Sacrifice, Yellow River, Raise the Red Lantern, The Peony Pavilion, Chinese New Year (The Nutcracker Chinese Version), The Crane Calling, The Light of Heart and The Nine-Colored Deer.
By both performing foreign ballets and creating works of its own with distinct national characteristics, the company has found a successful path for the development of Chinese ballet. Its many original ballets have already been known as classic Chinese works of art, and some famous internationally. They are fusing the classical and the modern, and cultures from all over the world.
For more than 60 years, the company is proud to have made great achievements in talents and productions, as well as in ballet promotion and education. A large number of ballet dancers, choreographers, musicians and stage artists have won major international awards, and have collaborated with international stars in their respective fields.
As a world-renowned company with great international influence, the National Ballet of China serves as a cultural envoy and an important window to the nation and Chinese culture. Except its endeavors to present high-level performances to the world audience, the company promotes the art form in universities, communities and among children.
In accordance with their motto “United, Pragmatic, Independent, and Enterprising”, the company members are following the steps of their hard-working predecessors to make great strides in realization of their dreams.
