The presentation of Yang Liping's Rite of Spring at Stanford University has been postponed from its original dates in February 2020. Sale timelines for performances taking place December 2020 and beyond will be announced this fall and winter. Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more on this phased on-sale approach and other FAQs.

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.

It was not until I attended the premiere in Shanghai that I realized what a huge star Yang Liping is in her native China. This new work offers a rare opportunity to see one of the world’s best artists at the top of her game.
