Li Cunxin was the special guest for network of Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce network who is QB’s Artistic Director and Queensland’s Australian of the Year 2014.
It was a special insight to experience an intimate rehearsal with Queensland Ballet and hear from Li Cunxin, and to a little brief of his true story that of the film Mao’s Last Dancer.
Li is credited with turning around Queensland Ballet, which has enjoyed a sell-out 2013/14 season under his guidance. More recently, Queensland Ballet broke a 54-year box office record for this year’s production of Romeo & Juliet with over 15,000 people in the audience. It was a real treat for all who attended and inspiring as to Li Cunxin.
