“Chinese people boast a splendid traditionalist culture and always seek perfection. I think we can expect that from the ballet, with artistic perfection.”
The troupe came from China’s northeastern province of Liaoning under the invitation of the festival-organizing committee.

“Culturally, it is something perfect. They come for exchange of cultures. We have something in common. New friendships are forged therefore.”
The International Cervantino Festival is an annual art event for global artists to promote reflection, coexistence and critical analysis of society, as well as commemorate those contributing to the development of the Spanish language.
