The performance for the opening ceremony is the concert of Spirit of France, which is a masterpiece to celebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and France. The renowned French conductor, Philippe Entremont, as well as many Chinese and French musicians, will cooperate with the Symphony orchestra from China National Opera House to present the romantic French melody, which will add brilliance to the present splendor of cultural exchange between China and France.
Have you ever seen the spectacle of playing Latin American instruments and traditional Chinese instruments together? The romantic atmosphere on the concert of Latin American Arts Season, and the passion of the Caribbean Music Festival, make people feel like being in the remote and mysterious Latin American continent.
We cannot miss the pop music concerts. The world tour of Deng Ziqi (G. E. M.), will ignite the fire of fashion and youth. The 10-year anniversary concert of Alan Tan & Hacken Lee will give you a different nostalgic feeling. Chaoyang Pop Music Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, and INTRO Electronic Music Festival, will free your youth with the most rock and roll, the freshest, and the most authentic attitudes in Spring.
As for the dance part, the performances are also quite stunning.

On the theater stages, “Old Horse” and “Black Horse” race together bridle to bridle. The classic historical dramas from Beijing People’s Art Theater, King Wu’s Dagger-axe vs. King Yue’s Sword , The Late Christopher Bean, Six Characters in Search of an Author will be presented together. The Face of Chiang Kai-shek, which originated from the cultural event on campus, explores the free expression of drama through black humor.
With the Spring rain and Spring sunshine, adhering to the concept of “Public Culture and Benefiting the Public”, the 14th Meet in Beijing Arts Festival comes and will keep the promise of free carnival and low-fare performances which will come to us and go into theaters, onto squares, and into schools.
A successful arts festival could shape and enhance the cultural taste and art position of a city, and moisturize people’s inner world with gentle care, as well as enriching the cultural life in a city.
