Tianjin Grand Theater New Year stage

Tianjin Grand Theater's concerts this year feature "integration" and "return". On the one hand, the concert will include different styles of folk music, symphonic music, rock and crossover music. On the other hand, several performances postponed due to the pandemic will be performed this year to make up for the regrets of music lovers. Pipa virtuoso Fang Kum Ryong will join hands with the new Kyushu Philharmonic Orchestra to express "dimension Bi" that breaks tradition and modernity with humor. The internationally influential Hanggai Band will lead the audience to swim in the world of blue sky and white clouds with its distinctive music style. Zhao Cong, head of the China National Orchestra and principal pipa player, will present a new expression of the combination of pipa, piano, string quartet and other instruments together with a number of outstanding artists. Symphonically, the "Complete Beethoven Series" concert by famous conductor Li Biao and Tianjin Song and Dance Theater Symphony Orchestra is worth looking forward to, which is a landmark artistic challenge for the troupe.

Drama brought together a variety of styles of famous groups and works. During the Spring Festival, Tianjin People's Arts will once again present Cao Yu's classic play Thunderstorm at Tianjin Grand Theater, allowing audiences to taste the original production. "White Deer Plain", a classic drama of Shaanxi people's art, will reproduce this simple and gloomy realism masterpiece with simple Shaanxi style. Adapted from the Academy Award for Best Picture, Parasite is a realistic and satirical social fable starring Hao Lei, Ma Tianyu and House Bin. And Then There Were None, a drama that has won acclaim among Tianjin audiences, will also be staged here. Based on Agatha Christie's novel of the same name, the drama is one of the best suspense stage productions in recent years.

There are plenty of good musicals this year, and the most anticipated are "Hidden Corners" and "The Orphan of Cho." The former, adapted from Zi Jinchen's novel "Bad Kids", presents a bizarre case related to "bad kids" with wonderful passages and ingenious stage design. Based on the well-known orphan story of Zhao, the latter reinterprets the brilliance and darkness of humanity in this tragedy from the perspective of today. The Chinese version of the musical "Fan Letter", the original Chinese musical "Youth Taboo Game", the ancient costume suspense musical "Tale of the Tang Dynasty Mandura" and the updated version of Meng Jinghui's "Murder in the Hanging Garden" will also meet with Tianjin audiences, so that the musical audiences enjoy.

The production, co-directed by dance stars Han Zhen and Zhou Liya, will be staged again at Tianjin Grand Theater this year, showing the perfect integration of traditional culture and contemporary stage presentation. In addition, Wing Chun, a new dance drama by the two directors, will also be on stage, interpreting the profound connotation of Chinese martial arts in the language of dance. Wang Yabin, a dancer from Tianjin, will return to her mother's home with the dance dramas "Growth" and "Lady of the Sea", which show her continuous exploration in the art of dance. Li Xing's first self-directed and self-starring work Grand Hotel will also appear, in which seven completely different characters tell the story of Rashomon in the Grand Hotel.
