Nostalgia, neo Maoists, and a great performance

The 50th anniversary of the Red Detachment of Women 色娘子 was celebrated yesterday (18 January 2014) at the outstanding National Centre for the Performing Arts 国家大 in Beijing.

1964, shortly after the man-made disaster of the Great Leap Forward this ballet became the tune of the years to come. The performance was sold out and the tunes of the Red Detachment of Women were still heard after the curtain fell.

Beijing, Janaury 2014.
