Beijing’s National Center for the Performing Arts is definitely my favourite building in Beijing. It might actually be my favourite building period. From the outside, it looks like a giant egg. Inside, there’s four theaters surrounded by a gorgeous wood, titanium, and glass shell.
The Russian National Ballet’s presentation of Swan Lake was also pretty impressive, but not as spectacular as I expected a Russian Ballet to be. I was expecting more Baryshnikov and less walking. That being said, any evening at The Egg is a fantastic evening.
