This epic, visually ravishing event comes from China’s most famous choreographer and dancer, Yang Liping.

Under Siege is her stunning vision of the climactic battle between Chu and Han armies - an encounter that changed the course of Chinese history and a love story between the besieged warlord Xiang Yu and his self-sacrificing concubine that would transcend death. Celebrated most famously as Farewell My Concubine, the story is reimagined by Yang with searing poignancy and breathtaking spectacle.

Designed by Academy Award-winning Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Akram Khan’s DESH) and Chinese American installation artist Beili Liu, Under Siege features performers from Peking Opera, hip-hop, ballet, contemporary dance, and classical and folk music. This is a magnificent, unforgettable experience.
