Just imagine bathing in the sunshine of Iberian Peninsula while experiencing the originality of Spanish artists and enjoying their passionate songs and dances. The festival was a fine collection of masterpieces of stage art home and abroad, artists of mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan displayed their versatility to celebrate the cenntenial of Chinese Spoken Drama. Inspired by French freedom and passion, French and Chinese artists continue their spiritual journey. Chinese heritage of 5 thousand years blended with global pop music, creating a fever for Chinese culture during the festival. The 7th Meet in Beijing was a reservoir containing inspirations of more than 100 artists from nearly 20 countries and regions.

Meet in Beijing is a stage for both creativity and dialogue. It opened with the splendid Mongolian musical epic Prairie Legend and closed with a passionate ballet presented by the Spanish National Ballet. As the honour guest country of the festival , Spain offered the audience a feast of flamenco dance, zarzuela Beautiful Kitchen, modern dance Ego-tik and a pioneering experimental theatre Empire, incoporating traditional, modern and avant-garde styles.
