“A ticket to the museum costs 36 yuan ($5), and if you book online in advance, you can get a disc上海千花坊品茶微信

But breakup museums did not originate in China. In 2006, an artist couple in Croatia came up

with the idea after breaking up and established the world’s first breakup museum. The idea drew many上海千花坊品茶微信

followers, and similar museums sprang up around the world. Many in China also jumped on the bandwagon.

“I think it is a quite new, creative form of economy,” said Dou Xuecheng, a professor wit

上海千花坊h Gansu Agricultural University. “Traditionally in China, love and relationships are not to be expressed or d

isplayed in public, but as our society becomes more diverse, the attitudes of young people are changing.”

Dou said that the museum is a reflection that more people are after spiritual satisfaction.上海千花坊品茶微信

“But such forms of the economy can be short-lived,” Dou said. “

The organizers need to strengthen the content and services in the museums to prolong their life.”上海千花坊

Li Fangfang said that currently, the most important thing is to keep the museum rolling financially.

上海千花坊品茶微信”Even though we have many visitors, we also face high rent and labor costs,” she said. “B

Net profit in the Jan-June period rose to between 2 billion yuan ($290 million) and 2.28

CATL said the strong profit growth came after it attracted more customers, strengthene、

Despite sluggish sales of gasoline-powered vehicles, China’s NEV market has experienced a boom.

Despite a “global slowd上海419lia’s economy has ma

aged to stay afloat thanks to a raft of stimulus measures and a surge in Chinese

demand for commodities, a new report by Deloitte Access Economics said on Monday.上海419品茶微信

While Australia has experienced falls in the real estate market, severe drought, stagnant wage gro

上海419wth and weak consumer spending over the past 18 months, strength in its robust resources sector has not waned.

This, combined with record low interest rates and generous tax breaks that were introduced by t上海419

he newly-elected Morrison government should help keep Australia’s economy on track, Deloitte Ac

cess Economics Partner Chris Richardson said in the firm’s latest Business Outlook for the month of June.上海419品茶微信

“Overall global growth looks set to stay in the slow lane through the rest o

f 2019 and through 2020 as well, though the extent of that slowdown looks to be co

上海419ntained as central banks start to boost their assistance to growth, and as government budgets do the same,” he said.

“Remarkably, despite the global slowdown, the world has given Australia a big pay上海419品茶微信

rise, as China’s stimulus means a surge in the demand for and prices of Australian coal and iron ore.”

上海419Although Australia’s inflation levels remain subdued mainly because of low wage growth, Richardson said the cou

ntry’s central bank is now beginning to change direction when it comes to monetary policy.上海419

“For years the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) thought full employme

nt meant unemployment of “around 5.0 percent,” but now it thinks unemployment can go a lit上海419

tle under 4.5 percent before wages start to party. Australia can go stronger-for-longer before inflation revs up,” he said.

上海419品茶微信”But getting unemployment under 4.5 percent is more than the RBA can do by itself, so official ra

tes are headed to 0.75 percent or 0.5 percent pretty fast, and things get more complicated after that.”

“We may be in for a phase in which Australia joins much of the world in having interest rates very low for some time. Th上海419品茶微信

at change of tack by the RBA is keeping the Australian dollar under control despite sky-high commodity prices.”

Yantai, a coastal city in East China’s Shandong province, which is

a popular tourist destination, is trying to regain its past glory as a center for Peking Opera.上海千花坊女神会所

Peking Opera, or jingju, is a traditional Chinese art form, which has a history of more tha

n 200 years. In 2010 UNESCO declared Peking Opera an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

上海千花坊To promote the art form, the local government in Yantai is to launch its first Peking Op

era summer camp from July 19 to 24, hoping to attract young students from around the country.

The summer camp, which is being supported by Jingju Theatre Company of Beijing will have veteran Peking Opera artists c上海千花坊女神会所

oach young students on painting the facial masks for Peking Opera, acting and giving live performances.

The origins of Peking Opera go back to 1790, when four famous Anhui Opera troupes came to Beijing as part of the celeb

上海千花坊rations for the 80th birthday of Emperor Qianlong (1711-99) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and stayed on.

Then, in 1828, some famous Hubei Opera troupes came to Beijin上海千花坊女神会所

g. And then the artists from the Hubei and Anhui troupes often performed jointly.

Later, around 1840, Peking Opera began to formally take shape, growing even faster d

uring the reign of the Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908), who was a Chinese opera lover.

After that, Peking Opera, which is known for combining various art for

ms, like singing, dancing, acrobatics, and for elaborate costumes and movements, grew f

rom strength to strength. Peking Opera troupes were born in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai.

when its performanc上海品茶微信 created a sensati

The first time the POB visited Shanghai was in 2005, when its performance of Giselle created a se

nsation in the city, says Zhang Xiaoding, general manager of Shanghai Grand Theatre.上海品茶微信

“It is very difficult to have the company come to China, because the cost is really high,” Zhang says.

上海品茶微信女神会所”We decided to make the best out of the opportunity, and prepared lectures, workshops and othe

r educational programs to allow the artists to communicate with the public in Shanghai.”

Tickets to the four Swan Lake shows sold out quickly, and the theater added dozens of temporary seats for each performance.

The two gala shows are selling very well, too,” she said before the shows.上海品茶微信

“Shanghai audiences not only enjoy classical ballets such as Swan Lake but have also show

上海品茶微信女神会所n a great deal of interest in contemporary dance. That’s why we made the request for the POB to present the

gala show featuring contemporary dance in Shanghai when we first discussed its tour plans.”

The gala show consists of three choreographers’ works. Blake Works I marks the first collaboration between choreo上海品茶微信

grapher William Forsythe and English musician James Blake. In the Night by Jerome Robbins is a romantic dan

上海品茶微信女神会所ce, consisting of three elegant duets to Chopin’s nocturne pieces. And The Seasons’ Canon features group dancing by

Crystal Pite to music from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, rearranged by Max Richter.

The POB is widely recognized for its excellence in classical ballet, but the company上海品茶微信女神会所

is equally strong in its interpretation of contemporary-dance works, Moglia

says. Contemporary dance productions now make up half of the POB’s performance programs.

oday, the POB has 154 dancers, including 17 danseurs etoiles (上海品茶微信

star dancers), a title awarded to only the most outstanding principal dancers.

上海品茶微信女神会所While most of the POB dancers come from the Paris Opera Ballet S

chool, the institution also recruits aspiring dancers from all over the world.

“We have dancers from 14 different countries,” Moglia says.

“One of them is from China, who used to study in H

ong Kong, and after three years of training at our school, he is now a dancer with the POB.”

One of the oldest ballet companies in the world, the POB is an integrated part of the Pari

s Opera. The ballet originated from earlier dance institutions and practices of the court of Louis XIV. The P

OB represents an important branch in the evolution of ballet, which originated from t

he royal courts of the Italian Renaissance. It was in France that ballet turned into an independent theatrical form

of art. After that, the Royal Danish Ballet and the Imperial Ballet of Russia also began to flourish.

The Paris Opera Ballet stages Nureyev’s vivid production of the Tchaikovsky classic, Zhang Kun reports in Shanghai.

上海后花园女神会所The Paris Opera Ballet, the national ballet company of France, wra

pped up a week of performances on Friday in Shanghai, the only stop in China during its s

hort tour of Asia that saw the prominent dance company visit Singapore from June 21 to 23.上海后花园

It was just one of a series of events to celebrate the POB’s 350th anniversary. The compa

上海后花园女神会所ny presented four performances of Swan Lake in Shanghai from June 29 to July 1 and two per

formances of a gala show, featuring creations by three contemporary choreographers, that concluded on Friday.

The company made the decision to perform Swan Lake in Shanghai not only because it is on

e of the most beloved productions in the ballet world, famed for its robust energy and rich color. More imp

ortantly, the version created by Rudolf Nureyev (1938-93) is one that “best represents the style, aesthetics and cap

abilities of the Paris Opera Ballet”, says Flavien Moglia, executive president of the company.

Nureyev, one of the former Soviet Union’s best-known dancers, created a new versio

n of Swan Lake in 1984, when he was the director of the company. Also considered one of the greatest male ballet danc

ers of the 20th century, Nureyev brought a new depth to the ballet, especially by adding a psychological angle to

the role of the prince, says Jean-Guillaume Bart, a ballet master with the POB.Nureyev gave the story a Freudian di

mension, illuminating Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream with a profound sense of hopelessness, he adds.

In Nureyev’s Swan Lake, the dark wizard is an ambiguous figure. At first, he serves as a sort of tutor or guide to the prince, bef

ore gradually turning into a negative influence that mirrors the dark side of the prince. The contrast between the w

hite swan and black swan also reflects the two sides of the prince’s soul, Bart explains.

Also, Nureyev introduced difficult new movements and gestures into his choreography. “We hope audiences can appre

ciate the depth of Swan Lake, rather than just seeing it as a traditional and established ballet production.”
