One of Shanghai Ballet’s classics

The White-haired Girl — the founding stone of Shanghai Ballet.

Time-honored — this remarkable piece has been performed over 2,000 times in the past 57 years.

Legendary — a heartrending Chinese story weaved through ballet.

Masterly — the national memories of an entire generation revived on pointe.

[Introduction]

The story takes place during the War of Resistance (1937-1945). On a Chinese New Year’s Eve, Japanese Traitor, local despot and landlord HUANG Shiren breaks YANG Bailao’s door and demands for payment of usury. YANG cannot afford it. HUANG Shirent beats YANG Bailao to death and snatches Xier, daughter of YANG Bailao, as his slave servant.

Overwhelmed by the humiliation at HUANG’s home, Xier runs away and takes cover in deep mountains. After years of suffering from fierce storms, ruthless weathers, and fighting off wild beasts for survival, her hair turns white... In the end, the Eighth Route Army liberates Xier and gives her a reborn.
