Beneath thousands of suspended steel blades a climactic clash rages: the Battle of Gaixia will forever change the course of Chinese history. Two mighty warlords are willing to stake their power for the ultimate prize. A legendary beauty will prove that love and loyalty outlive death.


Renowned choreographer and dancer Yang Liping, a singular force in Chinese dance, brings us Under Siege, a visually stunning new master-piece depicting a story of ambition, treason and eternal love. The piece is based on an epochal tale known in Chinese opera and lore as Farewell My Concubine. Set against the back-drop of the Chu-Han civil war period, this heart-breaking story has been celebrated through music, literature and films. Yang Liping joined forces with Academy and BAFTA award-winning set and costume designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Akram Khan's Desh), conjuring up visual magic on stage with artist-designer Beili Liu. With a cast of performers from backgrounds and traditions as diverse as Peking Opera, hip hop, ballet and contemporary dance, from classical sounds to folk music, this unique dance theatre piece is an unforgettable, breathtaking experience.
