CHINA ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT GROUP (CAEG) PRESENTS THE NATIONAL AWARD WINNING PRODUCTION OF
THE RED DRESS
The Chinese National award-winning ballet The Red Dress heads to Melbourne for an exclusive season at the Palais Theatre 10 and 11 March 2015. The world premiere was held in New York in March 2014 to excellent reviews. CAEG is excited to return to the Palais Theatre having previously presented critically acclaimed productions of The Embroidery Girl and The Peony Pavilion.
The Red Dress tells a bittersweet and beautiful love story in Southern China. In an old town, a boy named Ayong (played by Zeng Ming) and a girl named Yue’er (played by Cheng Lin) are childhood playmates, and, in the first bloom of love pledge to marry. Ayong promises Yue’er he will “return home in silken robes and take her as his bride” and leaves town to make a living. Time passes and Ayong himself disappears without a trace. Yue’er, alone in her imagination, longs for the festivity and joy of the “ten-mile red dowry” of her wedding day, and waits in her beautiful dreams.
When I think of a Chinese performance I think colourful and all things pretty. When you walk into Melbourne’s Chinatown it’s covered in so many patterns and colors everywhere. There isn’t a store that you don’t look at thing wow thats really bold and unique.
I’m sure this show will be an eye opener with the bursts of so many things bold to the eye to look at.
