In the first half, the medium-sized work “Hamlet”, which was born in the “Ballet Creative Workshop” of the Chinese Ballet in 2014, was performed. On the stage composed of layers of curtains, the stage was presented in a very retro style to pay tribute to the great literary classics. In the second half of the performance, the best excerpts from many classical dance dramas such as “Dunhuang”, “Peony Pavilion” and “Yesterday Eternal” as well as modern and contemporary works were used to show Fei Bo’s exploration of looking back at the millennium history from a contemporary perspective, paying tribute to Chinese civilization, as well as his exploration of Delicate reflections on the true feelings of current life.

I hope you will continue to work hard. Create more and better works for China Ballet this year!”
Fei Bo said excitedly, “To be able to present my 20 years in China Bazaar in the form of such a party, I am very excited to stand here at this moment. Behind me are the excellent actors and technical team of China Bazaar. In front of me are leaders at all levels and senior artists who have laid the foundation, created conditions, and supported talents for the new generation of CBA creators, my mentors, close friends, and every audience friend who has always helped and encouraged me. Without you, there would be no continuous exploration by me and the many young creators of China Bazaar standing on the shoulders of giants.”
