The China Arts & Entertainment Group (CAEG), a creative enterprise under the administration of the Ministry of Culture for the People's Republic of China is pleased to announce the US Premiere of a new dance drama production of The Peony Pavilion by the China Jinling Dance Company of Nanjing taking the stage at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center January 5 - 8, 2012.

The engagement will be the first offering of what is hoped to be an ongoing relationship between CAEG and the David H. Koch Theater, which will showcase China's historical contribution to the world of theater and art, by bringing the finest in Chinese contemporary and classical performing arts to the United States on an ongoing basis.

The Peony Pavilion is a story about forbidden love, written by Tang Xianzu, and first performed in 1598 asKunqu opera during the Ming Dynasty. The four shows in January 2012 will mark the first time the dance drama will be performed outside of China, and the Ministry of Culture has chosen New York's David H. Koch Theater to take it center stage in its US premiere.
