Watch the Wolf  Totem dance. The Tsinghua Art Troupe will give their rendition of it during the show!

The highly distinguished Tsinghua University of China is so honored to be commemorating their 100th anniversary that they are sharing the grand celebration with the rest of the world by sponsoring a tour of their resident performing artists. Fortunately for us, Boston is one of  the stops on this special celebratory journey! Founded in 1958 with the aim of promoting the Chinese traditional arts, the award-winning Tsinghua Art Troupe is comprised of some 1,000 plus faculty members and students who perform in several individual specialized music and dance ensembles. What they are bringing us is a small cross-section of the whole, 60 faculty members and 45 students to be exact, which is representative of the variety of  performing art forms which make up the structure of this huge multi-faceted organization. The show, appropriately entitled “Tsinghua Dream Flying Abroad”, will include Chinese folk art presentations in the form of various instrumental, choral and dance ensembles, appearing either separately or together on stage. There’s even a selection from the Peking Opera to make things all the more interesting. This show, in all its diversity, is not only entertaining but educational as well, as the audience is presented with a true survey of  the Chinese traditional performing arts all within a single performance.
