BEIJING, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- The following are a selection of art festivals, shows and exhibitions available in Beijing in the coming week:

Barcelona Flamenco Company Flamenco Reborn

Date: Jan. 21-22

Time: 19:30

Venue: Opera House, National Centre for the Performing Arts


Barcelona Flamenco Ballet fuses three dance styles including jazz, contemporary dance and flamenco, but the integration of the three results in a totally innovative onstage presence. The rhythm itself is "reborn" too, which constantly renews the dynamics of the performance, keeping it fresh and alive. These transitions from the exuberant outpourings of passion to quiet moments of intimacy mean that the production is constantly in fluctuation and in a process of reinvention.

Date: Jan. 26-30

Time: 14:30, 19:30

Venue: Opera House, National Centre for the Performing Arts


Lord of the Dance is a spectacular new staging of the much-loved traditional masterpiece. Telling a classic tale of good versus evil, the performance is choreographed and directed by Michael Flatley, a world-renowned dancer who changed the face of Irish dance with his breath-taking creation of Riverdance. With all the visceral precision and thrills of the original, Lord of the Dance features new staging, new costumes and choreography.
