The Tianqiao Performing Arts Center celebrated its second anniversary in Beijing on Nov 19, 2017.

Covering an area of 165, 000 square kilometers, the center has strived to be a professional and market-oriented and international establishment as well as a top stage that leads the performing arts industry in China.

“Culture is the soul and name card of a city. To be a cultural center of Beijing and art place for people, Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center has always been working hard in the capital’s cultural field. Since it was established two years ago, it has staged over 1,400 performances, having received over a million audiences and established a remarkable reputation in the performing arts field, media and citizens,” said An Zhaohui, chairman of Beijing Tianqiao Zenith Investment Group Co, Ltd.

For the past two years, the center has introduced Broadway musical My Fair Lady, French musical Romeo and Juliette in 2016, and other classics, including Wicked, the Producers, Jersey Boys and the Chinese version of Jekyll and Hyde, becoming a home of musical fans in Beijing.

Besides musicals, the center has also held a series of arts festival for different groups. For instance, the Women of the World Festival held in September this year invited more than 100 female guests from all walks of life to share experience on arts and bring arts closer to people’s daily life. Also, the City Arts Carnival targeted at white-collar workers and family groups held a series of shows during the summer time.

In response to the Belt and Road Initiative and deepening the cultural communication with countries involved in the initiative, the center has invited artist from such countries as Russia, Lithuania, Italy, Israel and Tajikistan, to perform in Beijing.

Tianqiao Performing Arts Center has signed strategic partnership with London-based Southbank Center through a comprehensive collaboration in the fields of art festival, staff training and exploration of content.

“In the future, the center will strengthen cultural confidence and promote the prosperity of socialist culture, offer qualified art show to meet people’s increasing spiritual and cultural needs, and make culture serve the people and the city better,” said Zhang Li, general manager of Tianqiao Performing Arts Center.
