【看舞蹈 Ballet】


地點:McCaw Hall

西北太平洋芭蕾舞團(PNB)將在本月尾演出《灰姑娘》這個備受喜愛的童話故事。這部作品通過芭蕾舞劇的驚人之美,生動地說明了熟悉的敘事並支持各種各樣的角色扮演,從愚蠢的姊妹、到微小的跳舞南瓜,再到溫柔 英俊的王子 … 當灰姑娘的象牙車在宏偉的金色宴會廳的入口處停下來,她踏出第一步,害羞的身影,步入漩渦狀,身穿猩紅色服裝的舞者之中時,帶同觀眾與她一起實現了這一夢想。


When: Jan. 31 – Feb. 9
Where: McCaw Hall

Pacific Northwest Ballet continues its 47th season with the return of Founding Artistic Director Kent Stowell’s wondrous Cinderella. Last seen at McCaw Hall in 2012, PNB’s production conjures rare enchantment from this best-loved fairy tale by recalling Cinderella’s long-lost mother in a tender memory scene and then returning her in the guise of the Fairy Godmother. As if stepping between the pages of a beloved storybook, the ballet’s breathtaking beauty, in union with Prokofiev’s evocative score, vividly illustrates the familiar narrative and supports a rich array of character roles—from silly step-sisters to tiny dancing pumpkins to a gentle, handsome prince. And when her ivory carriage rolls to a stop at the entrance to a magnificent golden ballroom and Cinderella takes her first, shy steps into the midst of swirling, scarlet-clad dancers, all hearts go with her into this dream come true.

作為世界上最大,人口最多的大陸,亞洲不是統一的或固定的:其邊界在變化,其人民和文化是多種多樣的,其歷史是複雜的。 經過改造性的翻新後,西雅圖亞洲藝術博物館(美國僅有的少數亞洲藝術博物館之一)重新開放,展示了這種複雜性。 來自不同文化背景,從古代到當代的作品匯集在一起,以非線性的敘事方式講述了亞洲的故事。

Asia can be defined in many ways, geographically, culturally, and historically. As the world’s largest and most populated continent, Asia is not uniform or fixed: its boundaries shift, its people and cultures are diverse, and its histories are complex. After a transformative renovation, the Seattle Asian Art Museum—one of only a few Asian art museums in the United States—reopens with a presentation that embraces this complexity. You will not find galleries labeled by geography. Instead, works from different cultures and from ancient to contemporary times come together to tell stories about Asia in a non-linear narrative.
