Famous dancer bringing ballet gala to city in first China visit

WORLD-RENOWNED Italian ballet dancer Roberto Bolle will bring his "Roberto Bolle & Friends" company to China for the first time in a gala concert in Shanghai this year.

The ballet gala will be staged on September 27-28 at Shanghai Cultural Square. A dozen other famous ballet dancers around the world will be invited to join, and Bolle said he wants to include some world-class Chinese ballet dancers.

Bolle said he wants to reach a wider audience, especially those just starting to learn about ballet.

"I'll also be the artistic director of the gala and invite the dancers personally, and will show everyone the diverse aspects of dance," said Bolle.

The two-day gala concert will range from a classical repertoire to modern and contemporary works. The full cast will be announced later.

Bolle was trained at La Scala Ballet School and is a principle dancer of La Scala Theatre and American Ballet Theatre. He has danced in major theaters worldwide with prestigious companies, including the Bolshoi Ballet, the Mariinsky Ballet, and Ballet of the Opera de Paris.
