This summer’s presentation of the stunning Chinese dance-theater work Under Siege (August 8–10) is based on historic events that form the backdrop of the acclaimed film Farewell, My Concubine. Winner of the 1993 Cannes Palme d’Or, the film depicts a love story that emerges in a Peking opera troupe as they enact the fabled tale of a besieged warlord and his self-sacrificing concubine. Visually impressive and emotionally complex, Farewell, My Concubine stars Gong Li and Leslie Cheung, and was nominated for two Oscars.
