February 3, 2020: Due to travel restrictions and logistical issues related to the latest in coronavirus news, Stanford Live has made the decision to reschedule their presentation of Yang Liping’s Rite of Spring on February 21 and 22 at Stanford University. Their team is working hard to ensure that this incredible show goes on as planned at a later date. All tickets already sold for this performance will remain valid.
Chinese dance legend and renowned choreographer Yang Liping—a 2018 judge on So You Think You Can Dance: China—brings her stunning reimagining of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring to Stanford. A product of her native Chinese culture intermingled with the Tibetan concept of nature and life, Liping’s Rite of Spring spins an abstract legend of the path of salvation embodied by the sacrificial peacock. Through spectacular set design and exquisite costumes, the production creates a distinctive universe where time, space and life coexist in endless reincarnation.
