Hot Date: China’s Guangzhou Ballet

OCTOBER 18 The contemporary dance of China steps delicately into Toronto this month, as the Guangzhou Ballet presents its exquisite Return on a Snowy Night. This four-act ballet spins a mystical story about a 20-year relationship between a Peking opera singer and the concubine of a high-ranking official. Incorporating traditional Chinese dance and opera along with more exploratory, modern elements, the production evokes a dramatic range of emotions while the dancers’ precise movements relate a poignant love story. Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, 8 p.m., $45 to $175; call 1-855-872-7669 or visit here for more information and to buy.
