The Guangzhou Art Festival 2017, which offers 22 programs involving 67 shows from home and abroad, will open tomorrow and run until September 10 at different theaters throughout Guangzhou.

The festival is organized by the Publicity Department of the CPC Guangzhou Municipal Committee, Guangzhou Culture, Radio, TV, Film, Press and Publication Bureau and Guangzhou Opera House.

Providing many types of drama — including opera, musicals, dance, Cantonese opera, children's drama and puppet shows — this year's festival, themed "Theater", aims to build Guangzhou into an internationally renamed theater city.

The festival will introduce a great number of foreign dramas, such as the Italian opera "Aida," giving people a great chance for close interaction with distinguished world operas. It also strives to establish a Maritime Silk Road cultural platform to enhance cultural communication with countries along the Belt and Road.


On the evening of July 8, "L'Avare de Molière," an ironic story showing French society with wit and humor, will take the stage at Guangzhou Opera House, raising the curtain on the festival. "Aida," by Giuseppe Verdi, will be performed on September 8-10 to close the festival.


Other top performances will include the "most happy" musical on Broadway, "Sister Act;" a Chinese version of the musical, "Murder Ballad;" and the dance performance, "Peacock of Winter," by Yang Li Ping. Also, to mark the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China, a great number of performances will be provided by Hong Kong arts groups, including "The Last Supper" and "The Din Family" by Hong Kong Repertory Theater and "L'Amour Immortel" by Hong Kong Dance Company.

All tickets for the festival are sold at a bargain price, with the lowest price of 80 yuan for performances at Guangzhou Opera House and 30 yuan for performances at other theaters. Tickets are available on Damai.cn (http://en.damai.cn/) or the official website of Guangzhou Opera House (http://www.gzdjy.org/).

Here is the detailed list of performances.
