山东11选5预推号: Viennese traditions waltz to Beijing
山东十一选五 www.rtbce.com Chinese waltz enthusiasts have cause for excitement as the Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Center has announced its annual waltz gala, the Kempinski Vienna Ball Beijing, set to be held on April 13.
The hotel has hosted the event annually for the last four years as part of their efforts to bring Austrian culture to China, and this year's ball will again try to bridge the passion for music and art between Beijing and Vienna.
Friedrich Stift, Austrian ambassador to China, said that he hopes the ball will provide "unparalleled Viennese culture and one of the most important insights into the Austrian lifestyle to Beijing, the city of the imperial traditions and the joy of life."
The ball will attempt to advance local community art, according to organizers, and will feature a performance from one of Europe's leading ensembles, the Strauss Festival Orchestra Vienna, with reality TV star Allan Wu acting as the event's bilingual host.
Former state opera solo dancer Heinz Heidenreich will lead guests in a quadrille dance during the night, helping them to dance with grace, style and confidence.
"It's in Kempinski's DNA to bring the same appreciation to the fans, connoisseurs and aficionados of great music, art and fashion of Beijing," said Brice Péan, managing director of the Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Center.
The ball will also feature an Austrian gourmet feast, showcasing the country's traditional cuisine, and represents the best way of experiencing European culture, according to Péan.
"Since we created the tradition, we need to maintain it," he told China Daily's app.
While the Vienna Ball has a history of more than 80 years, 2019's edition is to be ambassador Stift's second event. He said he hopes the ball can help develop friendships between the people of China and Austria.
