The Australian Ballet will perform the classic "The Sleeping Beauty" at the National Center for the Performing Arts (NCPA) in Beijing from Oct. 11 to 14.

"Sleeping Beauty is our newest production. It is grand and lavish," said Artistic Director David McAllister in a previous interview with Xinhua in June. "What I did was make it shorter. It was four hours' long, and I trimmed it down to have it focus on Aurora, the main character, so as to make it strong."

This will be the company's ninth visit to China since its establishment in 1962. They will also perform "The Sleeping Beauty" in Shanghai and "Giselle" in Nanjing later this month.

As one of the world's premier ballet companies, the Australian Ballet regularly represents Australia on the world stage and has performed to critical acclaim in 87 cities worldwide, according to the NCPA website.
