The fascinating legend about an Emperor Xuanzong and his fatal attraction to the beloved concubine Yang Guifei is one of the "eternal plots", which had hundreds of interpretations. However, the famous European choreographer Patrick de Bana for the first time presents the classics of ancient Chinese literature through modern ballet. A romantic and tragic story of love, which was sacrificed to the duty, turned into a bright dance extravaganza, real poetry in motion.
Patrick de Bana is one of the world's most cosmopolitan choreographers, with a fantastic sense of time and style. He was born in Germany, studied dance in Hamburg under the direction of John Neumeier, was a soloist of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne, the leading soloist of the National Theatre of Dance in Madrid under the direction of Nacho Duato. In 2003 he founded the “Nafas Dance Company” in Valencia. He created many choreographic compositions for artists and companies around the world.
